Why is the Birkin a worthy investment. Its exquisite artisanal make is good reason enough to buy the bag. Besides the quality materials used, it is a bag that is completely handmade. Only one artisan works on it from start to finish. With a unique stitching process called the “Saddle Stitch”, it will not unravel even if (and this is almost never) a stitch comes loose. More than 48 hours of immaculate, precise handiwork is invested before the birth of a brand new Birkin.
This bag is crafted from Epsom leather, an embossed leather and is accentuated with gold-plated hardware. This leather is not as supple as other popular leathers from Hermes but its more sturdy characteristic suits bags with a more structured appearance and it retains its shape for many years to come. It is very durable, more scratch-resistant and is easily maintained, yet is also a lightweight leather, all pluses if you are looking to make the Birkin your everyday bag.
This bag is brand new and has its box, clochette, dust bag and lock.
