Hermès has designed an amazing handbag called The Birkin bag. It was named after Jane Birkin who is a famous London actress and singer. She asked Hermès to design a handbag for her which became known as the Birkin bag and has grown to include many different sizes and styles.
The beautiful Birkin bag ranges in price from £4,800 to £100,000. It depends upon the type of materials you choose and the quantities available of the style and colour selected. All of the Birkin bags are lined with goatskin. The Birkin bag does not have any logos representing the product. Yet, the Birkin bag is one of the most recognizable bags.
When you purchase a Birkin bag, you have many choices to make:
The size is one of the choices. The Birkin bag ranges from 25 to 40 centimetres. There are traveling bags, which are 50 and 55 centimetres.
Exterior colour is another choice. The inside colour will match the exterior. The colours range from white, black, golden tan, orange, olive green, blue, baby blue, navy blue, pink, brown, red, and many more.
The hide choices include calf leather, crocodile, ostrich, and lizard.
Each bag comes with a lock and keys. The hardware of the Birkin bag is plated with either gold or palladium. The lock can be covered with leather if desired.
More choices - Diamonds can be added as well as other embellishments.
What to do if your Birkin Bag looks worn out? If your Birkin bag has that well-worn look, Hermès will recondition the bag as a ‘spa treatment’. Information about the ‘spa treatment’ can be obtained either by customer service within the store or online at the website.
Each Birkin bag is hand sewn and takes several days to finish. The average craftsman takes approximately 48 hours from start to finish. Because of the care and time put into each Birkin bag, there has been a six (6) year waiting list at times. Fortunately, there is no longer a waiting list.
Hermès has created a truly amazing Birkin bag!
