The legendary Hermès Birkin 35 handbag with its clean, classic design was created in the 1980s. The inspiration for the then CEO of Hermès, Jean-Louis Dumas, was a chance meeting with the recently deceased actress and singer Jane Birkin on a plane three years earlier. Birkin expressed her desire for a handbag that was both stylish and practical, which led to the creation of one of the world's most coveted handbags. Hermès handbags are meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans using premium materials and traditional techniques involving high-quality leather, usually sourced from Hermès-owned tanneries. The craftsmanship, quality and exceptional attention to detail in their construction contribute to their longevity, making them timeless investment items.
