The Birkin Touch is something new and a little different from Hermes and combines the main body of the bag in one leather, the flaps, handles and straps are all in a different leather, or exotic skin – it’s always a striking combination of the two. A few years ago Hermes started crafting bags with just a “touch” of exotic leather. And it’s not just Birkins — Touch Kellys, Touch Picotins, and even Touch Baton de Craies have been spotted! These bags are considered “Limited Edition” for Hermès purposes and are quite rare. Kept in Store Fresh condition in a seasoned collection.

Where used in this sale the term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
