When you carry a Birkin, people automatically sit up and notice. The bag is instantly and globally recognised as a symbol of status, wealth and distinction. It’s no wonder many A-listers, First Ladies, celebrities and fashionistas favour it as an arm companion.
A completely handmade bag, only one artisan works on it, from start to finish. But not every artisan hired by the company gets to work on the Birkins or Kellys - the ones who do are required to undergo three to four years of training before they can work on them.
This Birkin has been gently used and is still in a pristine condition. It is crafted from Togo leather and sports gold-plated hardware. Marked with the ‘X’ stamp, this piece was crafted in 2016. This particular shade of gray in the Hermes colour chart called Etain, is highly popular amongst Hermes aficionados. Additional items that come with this Birkin include two dust bags, lock, keys, clochette, care card, rain protector, felt cloth, box and the original receipt.
