The bag that was created for actress Jane Birkin in 1984 to cart her daily essentials, the Birkin has withstood the test of time and style, becoming a status and wealth symbol along the way. The scarcity of these bags and its ever-increasing demand has made the Birkin a high-returns investment piece, comparable and even surpassing the investment worthiness of gold and stocks.
Crafted in the popular Togo leather and accentuated with gold-plated hardware, the bag has a soft pebbled finish that feels smooth, yet grainy. This material is a great choice for bigger bags, as its sturdiness helps to maintain the bag’s silhouette over time.
This Birkin bears the “Q” square stamp code to indicate its 2013 make. It has minimal and negligible traces of usage on its exterior, except for some scuffs on the handle of the bag. Otherwise, this piece is still in very good condition, and comes with its clochette, dust bag, key, lock and rain cover.
