Lilac Blue bag bolsters are available in five colour ways with contrasting piping. We have sourced high quality cotton calico, cotton velvet, and organic English sheep’s wool for the padding. They are completely biodegradable, natural and made by hand in the UK. Please dry clean them to keep the shape and do not use when wet. Because they are a new product and made by hand, we would love your feedback.
Currently available for Kellies 28cm, 32cm and 35cm, and Birkins 30cm and 35cm. Other sizes are available on request.
Please let us know if you’d like another colour as we are developing the next collection.
Most Hermes handbag lovers in Europe and the Americas request togo leather. It’s a natural leather from young bulls and given that each bag is made by hand, no two bags are the same. This is what makes Hermes bags unique and extraordinarily durable. As I was told by a Hermes sales manager: “Madame, if you want your bag to be identical to this one, you should go to Louis Vuitton”. So while some togo will maintain its structure for a years, most will start sagging within a few months. By storing it lying down with a bag bolster inside, you can minimise the ageing. If you need to stand it up, the bag bolster is important, especially for a 35cm Birkin. Other leathers, such as clemence and swift, are even softer. Epsom will not become slack, but may develop dents, which means you should make sure the bolster is pushed far into each bottom corner of the handbag. The new leathers, novillo and evercolor, have not been around long enough for us to know exactly how they will age. They are relatively supple, so a bag pillow would be a good idea, especially on larger bags.
