The classic 35cm black Birkin in Clemence leather. Clemence leather is made from baby bull, this leather has been on the scene since the 1980s and is very much a classic material. The heavy leather is extremely durable, offering tough resistance against tarnishing, although it tends to be one of the slouchier leathers.
British actress Jane Birkin, sitting next to Jean-Louis Dumas, Executive Chairman of Hermès (1978-2006), was complaining that she couldn’t find a bag suitable for her needs as a young mother.
A born creator with a keen eye, he immediately sketched a supple and spacious rectangular holdall with a burnished flap and saddle stitching.
