Light colors are especially difficult to produce in leather, as the natural pigments must first be stripped out before dyeing can begin. Hermes takes this a step further when they create light shades that hold nothing more than the essence of a color, like Craie is white with the essence of yellow, and the new Nata is white with the essence of pink. Blue Pale, produced for one season only, is white with the essense of blue. The crisp morning sky in the hazy distance. This store-fresh 30cm Birkin features the color in Togo leather with gold hardware, which offsets the unusual color beautifully.

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.
