Petit h Creates Masterpieces From Hermès' Cutting-Room Floor

As a little girl hanging around her family's workshop, Pascale Mussard—a sixth-generation Hermès—couldn't help but notice all the scraps of silk, strips of croc, and slightly bent silver spoons littering the floors. Now, as artistic director of Petit h, a line she launched in 2010, Mussard works with a team of 10 craftsmen to repurpose such castoffs, transforming them into leather clocks, life-size animal sculptures, and unique coin trays (like the one pictured above). Some 4,000 pieces hit the West Coast for the first time June 13 through 29 at a pop-up shop at Hermès' South Coast Plaza store in Orange County, California. (The goods will also be available online.) Get there early and you might even score the one-of-a-kind coffee-cup holder—which beats having someone scribble your name on the cup.

See more examples of Mussard's work, below.
