This is not the first time Hermes has used Fetrue Wool in bags, but it is the first time we’ve ever seen the lightweight felt used in a HAC Birkin, and the effect is incredible. The subtle texture of the gray fuzzy wool is pair perfectly with Black togo leather and cool palladium hardware. The body of the bag is made entirely from a thick piece of Feutre Wool, with no additional lining, making this 50cm Haut a Courroies Birkin extremely lightweight, perfect for travel. The Haut à Courroies, (which translates as “high belts”) bag, is very similar to the Birkin but proportionally taller with slightly shorter handles. Sought after by Hermes connoisseurs and celebrities, making an especially stylish travel bag.

Where used in this sale the term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
