Why are they so exclusive?

Back in 1984, The Hermès Birkin bag was born after British actress and singer Jane Birkin struggled to find a suitable bag for all her items.

Each Birkin is meticulously crafted using materials including crocodile, ostrich, and python leathers, so you know its quality is primo. 

Wait lists to get your hands on a Birkin can be years long, which adds to its exclusivity in the fashion world. 

There have even been studies done on the investment of a Birkin, with its return value sitting higher than the likes of stock and gold! 

We can't wait to see what kind of price these beauties fetch at auction and we're definitely not at all jealous of whoever gets to take them home...
