The famous Birkin Ghillies is crafted by the artisans of Hermès who were once craftsmen of the famed Ghillies shoes. The Birkin Ghillies collection was created for the 2012 Spring/Summer collection and was inspired from the ancient dancing shoes of the Celts. Adopting premium finishing to grace the Ghillies bags, it is a demonstration of superb craftsmanship which is seen even in its punched work. The clochette comes with a tassel which can be fitted into the pocket cove containing the keys to the bag.
Argile is a delicate mix of gentle hues of beige and grey while Etoupe takes you to the feeling influenced by the dawn of a new season. The charm of the Swift leather has its origins in its characteristics of a unique soft texture and attractive leather. Crafted from soft calfskin, the leather is an epitome of premium quality with its delicate finish. Learn more about Hermès Leathers here.
