When it comes to handbags, it doesn't get more iconic than Hermès Birkin. Seen as the ultimate status symbol, this bag was originally created by former Hermès Chief Executive Jean-Louis Dumas for the famous Paris-based British actress Jane Birkin. This roomy, elegant-yet-sporty bag is made of matte alligator, with handles designed to be carried in the hands or the wrists.
Handmade in Paris by expert artisans, the bag is hand-sewn with Hermès' signature saddle stitching that was developed in the 1800s. The gold hardware is plated with precious metal to prevent tarnishing, and the geranium red color makes this bag truly exceptional. Timeless and sophisticated, the Hermès Birkin is the bag every woman needs, and the bag every woman wants.
Hermès of Paris, simply known as Hermès, is a French manufacturer established by Thierry Hermès in 1837.
