Call it destiny or a sheer luck, but if English actress and singer Jane Birkin had not bump into Hermes CEO Jean-Louis Dumas on a flight back in 1981, there might not have been the iconic Birkin bag. Birkin’s belongings had spilled from her straw bag. She vented to Dumas about not being able to find a stylish leather weekend bag big enough for all her things, and the quick-thinking Dumas sketched the first prototype of the Birkin on the back of an airsick bag. In 1984, the Birkin finally made its debut - a leather holdall that was made for travel, it was functional and stylish.
This featured Birkin is crafted from the Togo leather, that is durable and scratch-resistant. This fine-grained leather with a soft pebbled finish, has a textured feel. Although the leather is soft and supple, it is able to hold its shape, and because it relatively light in weight, it is a popular choice for larger and structured bags.
Our brand new Hermes Birkin Handbag in size 25, comes with its box, clochette, dust bag, key, padlock and rain cover. Decorated with silver hardware, the featured Birkin is embossed with a “C” stamp, that indicates it 2018 make.
