History Behind the Birkin Bag

Some of you might be asking where does the term Birkin bag of Hermes came from. I did some research about it actually and interestingly, i found out that Birkin Bag is named after Jane Birkin, a prominent English Actress of the late 60’s. The history behind the creation of Hermes Birkin bag is very interesting indeed. It all started when Jean-Louis Dumas (Hermes Chief Executive) was seated next to Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. Well after placing her straw bag in the overhead compartment of her seat, however, the contents of her bag suddenly fell on the floor, leaving her no choice to scramble to replace the contents. Birkin told Dumas that it had been difficult to find a leather weekend bag she liked. And so, Dumas created a bag for her and named it after her. After that, the rest of the story is history, making way for the bag itself to become an icon.

Today, Hermes is among those designer bags that women are dying to have for not just because of its artistic appearance but also because of its quality as well.
