Hermes Limited Edition 30cm Denim & Vache Naturelle Birkin Bag with Gold Hardware, 2009
Very Good Condition
This bag is done in Vache Naturelle leather with an unusual blue denim body. It features two rolled leather handles, a flap and turnlock closure, and Gold hardware. Hermes has a long history of producing Canvas Birkins, though mainly in the 35cm and 40cm sizes, and most were produced in the 1990's and early 2000's, so finding a 30cm Birkin with denim from 2009 is very rare. The leather trim on this bag is Vache Naturelle, which is the sister heritage leather to Barenia; similar in look and marked by the foil-free Hermes brand stamp, Vache Naturelle is stiffer and less likely to darken than Barenia. This bag is lined with matching Chevre leather with one slip pocket and one zip pocket. It includes the lock, two keys, and a matching clochette..
