Beginning this week in Seattle, the Hermes Festival of Crafts highlights the workmanship of the men and women behind the iconic French luxury brand. Each stop on the three city tour will allow visitors to observe master craftsmen at work and get a “behind the scenes” look at how everything from bags to watches are made. The Festival setting has been designed by acclaimed Milanese designer Paolo Navone, with each craft being offered it’s own unique space.

A unique opportunity for visitors to experience first hand the consummate skills of leather making, silk engraving, jewelry making and many more crafts.

The Hermes Festival of Crafts is in Seattle through February 28, 2011. Following that stop, the craftsmen will travel to Chicago and Washington, D.C.
