Here's an analogy for all you music mavens:

If John Lennon is the Birkin bag, then Paul McCartney is the Kelly- the equally popular, but (arguably) not as exceptional, counterpart.

Which leaves George Harrison as the the Jige Élan clutch.

Far less known than the former two, the Jige is worshiped by the more hardcore of fans, who often see it as the true essence of Hermes' aesthetic.  Boasting no hardware, the clutch is sleek, without looking modern or trendy, timeless, and, most importantly, a testament to brand's incredible craftsmanship. 

And now, thanks to the fashion house's newfound love of DIY (see our homemade Kelly bags), all you need is a printer, a pair of scissors, some glue, and (voila!) you've crafted your own Jige.  Available via Hermes' Facebook page, the template is pretty self-explanatory.  Check our the two we fashioned below and let us know how yours turn out!
