Luxurious organizers custom made to fit Hermès bags

(Edited post featuring the inserts updated version 11/2016)

I am very proud and happy to introduce the new generation of the MaiTai Collection bag inserts today.

To the eye, there has not been much change. They are as exquisitely made and as pretty as always and, of course, they are still made in France by skilled and specialized craftsmen in the fine tradition of French savoir faire.


The innovation of the new generation lies within, invisible to the eye - the insert's construction has been completely reworked. The new generation inserts have a perfect balance between firmness and softness, which means that they are as gentle to the bag as before, but now stay beautifully in shape at the same time.

 Light and sturdy, they don't weigh your bag down and yet remain in perfect shape

Because of the new super light material within the interlining, the insert's sides remain straight even when heavier items are placed into the pockets in an otherwise empty bag.


They remain a perfect liner. The inserts fit each respective bag like a glove and leave no gaps between the insert and your bag, so they offer perfect protection to your bag's delicate interior leather, making sure it remains pristine and free of scratches.

 

As before, every aspect of the design is thought out with the protection of your bag in mind. The corners and edges are soft, and the seams and pockets are inward facing so that nothing risks marking or pressing against the leather of your precious bag.


There is no harsh plastic or cardboard sheeting which could force the leather against its natural movement or make your bag look boxy (I still firmly believe that inserts should not be used as a 'shaper' to force slouchy bags upright, and that rigid inserts risk causing irreparable damage to your bag). The inserts are still incredibly light - from 79 gr (2.78 oz) for the smallest to 187g (6.49 oz) for the largest.


A lot of thought and research has gone into the new generation inserts, followed by extensive tests and refinements of prototypes. In the end, I could not be more pleased with the outcome. However, there is a price to pay - the production of the new structure is more complex, which is reflected in a small increase in price.

If you prefer the previous style and appreciate a bargain, some styles and sizes of the previous inserts are still available at a discounted price (fitting Birkin 35 and Picotin 22 and 26 bags).

The new and previous inserts are available here

  9. I have the insert for the Picotin and love it! A great thing about these inserts is the ability to change bags by simply moving the insert from one to another. So convenient!
