Hermès with a little h

Hear ye, hear ye: Hermès has a new relation, and it's called Petit h. This modestly named label describes a collection of objects crafted with great skill by in-house experts at the big H using luxurious materials gathered
from atelier floors. The idea, conceived by a Hermès family member, is for these scraps to be made into objects. What each item ultimately becomes is up to the craftsman concerned, with the occasional input of a designer or two.
