Wednesday eBay Item of the Week!
Hermes | Birkin Shoulder Bag | View!
Late in the day, but here it is – Wednesday eBay item of the week. Look at the Hermes shoulder bag, isn’t it gorgeous! I know not everybody can afford a Hermes Birkin, but they are nice to dream over.
Designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier on behalf of Hermes, the chic 42cm JPG Shoulder Birkin is styled on the infamous Birkin design but to be worn over the shoulder with fashionable oversized hardware. The Hermes Birkin bag was originally created in the Fabuourg workshop in Paris in 1984 for the actress Jane Birkin. The Birkin which is a smaller version of the Haut a Courroies is an extremely versatile bag. With just 150 skilled Hermes craftsmen trained to make the Birkin and Kelly bags and where it can take such a skilled craftsman many hours to make such an equisite bag from cutting to finishing, demand for both the Hermes Birkin and Hermes Kelly bags far exceeds production, hence the notorious Hermes wait lists, where an existing customer can expect to wait from 3-7 years are now closed Worldwide. Each bag will have a code, which identifies the craftsman who made it, the year and the atelier it was made in.
