Rachel went to France to visit the HAAS tannery (the very same tannery that supplies Hermes, Chanel and many more) to source leathers for our Hermes bags!
Now let us ask you this… which other company do you know that travels across the world to go and source their own leathers from the very same tannery that Hermes themselves source from? The answer is no one else does this, except us and the Makers.
This leads us to the next logical question that you may all have… so what are we here at Uncle Bench? Are we Makers? Are we resellers?
The answer is we are neither, we are a hybrid. We do not make the bags and we do not resell the Maker’s bags. What we do is source our leathers direct from the HAAS tannery in France and then commission the best craftsmen on earth to create our beautiful bags for us.
Most other Hermes sellers you see online are merely resellers. Whether they own a website, sell over social media or are WeChat sellers, at the end of the day they are merely resellers and will sell whatever they can find and use marketing tactics to hype their products to make you think that they have the best Hermes bags on the market. Naughty we know, but unfortunately this is the reality.
We occasionally get asked “Why are your prices higher than ____?” – the answer is simple, our prices are actually lower than anyone else!
When we sell a best hand-made Hermes bag for $1,280, the market price is actually about $1500-$1600 and you will see resellers grading their bags as “authentic quality” for about $1500-$1600. When really their quality is at the most best hand-made (but most likely a much lower quality).
We know for a fact that our best hand-made is well under the current market rate that other people sell this quality for, and we also know that the authentic quality that we sell at $2600 is in a league of its own. No one else sells this quality, anywhere (despite what they may say).
Here at Uncle Bench we pride ourselves in not only talking the talk, but also walking the walk. We challenge any other company online to see if they can prove to you that they are more than just resellers, because we surely can, and it makes all the difference!
So without much further ado, we present to you some pictures we took whilst visiting HAAS!
We leave you with this one last question… who would you prefer to buy from, A reseller who merely buys whatever he/she can to sell on to you? Or a company that is involved every step of the way when it comes to producing the perfect Hermes bag for you?
We have your bag made from scratch, We QC every step of the way. We refuse to send anything less than perfection to you. What we create for you is a work of art. Not to be rushed and not to be done to any standard other than perfection.
So for your next Hermes purchase, forget the rest. We are the best.
