Deeply rooted in equestrian heritage, a utilitarian streak exists in all Hermes products. The Birkin is no exception, and no model sings this history louder than this 35cm example in classic Toile canvas with Barenia leather trim. A Birkin made from humble canvas, finished with buttery soft equestrian leather meant to wear and patina with regular use. Maintained in nearly unused condition for over a decade, this bag is an iconic example of what makes Hermes Hermes.

The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
