Hermes $16,000 Carbon Fiber Briefcase

Hermes is known as one of the most luxurious and prestigious brands in the world, and their carbon fiber briefcase is a prime example of this:

Hermes carbon fiber briefcase

The briefcase has a carbon fiber outercase and tan leather inner lining/handle. The locks are 18k gold plated, and there is also a small plate where your initials can be engraved. There are two different sizes, the larger (shown abobe) being 19″ X 14.5″ X 6″.

The briefcase has a limited production run of 500, and is priced at $16,000. Unfortunately the only place that I could find a picture or information was this eBay auction which has it priced for $10,000 new. I couldn’t find anything on the Hermes website. If anybody has or can find more pictures, please let me know.

    FYI this is fake, Hermes never made anything out of carbon fiber, you can even tell as the latch which is not that used by Hermes.

    Jen – are you positive? The eBay seller has great feedback. Look what his auction states:

    “NOTE: I HAVE MORE THAN 2700 POSITIVE FEEDBACK ON EBAY AND NO NEGATIVES. I ONLY SELL AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE BRAND NAME MERCHANDISE. I DO NOT SELL FAKES OR VARIANTS. I ABSOLUTELY GUARNATEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF EVERY ITEM I SELL WITH A TEN TIMES MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.”

    I need to get in touch with a Hermes store and find out for sure. I appreciate the heads up.

    Well, I don’t know if it’s real or not, but either way, I doubt anyone has that much money. If they do, they’d have to be crazy to spend it on a breifcase!

    Actually Hermes does make this item or at least did back in 1988 along with a matching, slightly thicker overnight case and they were gorgeous! I went to ebay to see if I could find one. I should have bought one back then as it was about $4,400 then. This was long before the general public nd design world was aware of the beauty of carbon fibre.

    I own one and I have the invoice from the Hermès boutique in France where it was purchased.
    I bought it in 2003 for 6150 Euros (almost 9000 US Dollars).
    Anyone interested in it, email me to get more pictures from this beauty?

    I am thinking of selling it actually (refers to the Hermes carbon fiber brief case / attache case , with leather-lined interior and handle and 18k gold plated metal parts). 16,7 x 12,4 x 4 inches. It comes with the Hermès protection bag and original invoice.
