Hermes bags are considered the ultimate luxury item the world over. Hand stitched by skilled craftsmen, wait lists of a year or more are commonplace.
Most Birkins are made in either Togo or Clemence leathers and are extremely difficult to obtain. Togo is scratch resistant calf leather; it is textured with a wonderful grainy appearance. Togo is soft to the hand and maintains the shape of the bag well over time; the most popular leather choice for the Birkin.
