The Story Behind the Hermès Kelly Bag
The Hermès Kelly bag is one of the most iconic and memorable ‘it’ bags of all time. Named after the famous actress and princess Grace Kelly, it has been one of the sought after and coveted bags for all time.
This iconic bag has a trapezoid shape, two triangular gussets, a sculpted flap, a handle, and good storage space. Nothing fancy, just a neat, plain, functional bag intended for independent, energetic women.
Over the years, the Kelly bag has had many reinventions: be it in made of feathers, plush, denim or sheared mink, silk or wire mesh, and remains an iconic ‘it’ bag that for all bag lovers alike!

If you make it on an 8 x 11.5 inch paper, it should come out about the size of a little gift bag. It would make the perfect little way to wrap a little present for someone special.
I can’t get over its uber cuteness of this little bag! The best part this template is that you can personalize it any way you want. Try printing it on a coloured or textured paper stock, or even create your own personal design or doodle to it.
