Hermes Birkin 35 Gris Tourterelle Ostrich Palladium Hardware
For years Hermes has made practically no Ostrich bags over 35cm, as sourcing quality skins of size has become increasingly difficult. This 35cm Birkin is rare not only for its size but also its color. Gris Tourterelle Ostrich has long been a favorite of Hermes lovers, the soft gray background is contrasted beautifully with the dark gray quills. Paired with Palladium hardware this unusual exotic neutral has been maintained in excellent condition with the plastic intact on the hardware, and is rarely seen on the market today.
