A predecessor of the famous Kelly bag, the Haut à Courroies (HAC) bag, which translates as “high belts”, first appeared in the late 1800’s and went on to inspire the design of the Birkin bag. It is the first born of Hermes.
Originally created for storing boots and saddles, it made the life of riders easier and added panache. With he advent of the automobile the HAC become the ideal travel bag - and remains true to that spirit today.
At the time it had no name. Haute meaning tall, and courroies meaning strap, eventually gave the name Haut a courroies.
It is quite similar to the Birkin but proportionally taller with slightly shorter handles featuring a roomier interior.
Carried in the hand rather than in the crook of the arm, today it’s flaunted as a stylish unisex travel bag.
