If you are a well-established client of Hermes, you may have the chance to be invited to create your own piece. In this case, you will be able to customize your bag choosing the size, the materials or even the colors. Only few customer will get the possibility to do a so called “SO” (Special Order). The whole process to get such piece can take few years due to the availability of certain material. It happens that the original client will no longer be interested therefore the Special Order will be offered to someone else.
