Hermès HAC Birkin 32 Parchment Ostrich and Toile with Brushed Palladium Hardware
The HAC, also known as the Haut à Courroies bag, has been a part of Hermès' production line for over a century. Originally created to hold a rider's saddle and boots, the HAC has now become a popular travel bag among Hermès enthusiasts, especially in larger sizes. However, smaller sizes like the 32cm version featured here are increasingly rare on the market, having gone out of production more than a decade ago. This example is particularly special not only for its Toile canvas body, which makes the bag light and casual, but for the trim which is done in creamy Parchment Ostrich. All of this is topped with brushed Palladium hardware for an entirely unique look. Maintained in exceptional condition since its production over 20 years ago, this rare HAC Birkin will make an excellent addition to any collection.
