The Hermès Birkin is the most iconic and sought-after handbag in the world (even if you don’t like it, it’d be hard to argue otherwise), and that means most fashion lovers have already absorbed a lot of information about how it was conceived, how it’s made and how hard it is to get one.

And he continued with details: ‘It requires not only specialized skills but also high experienced craftsmen, and the labor cost is equal to the hours of work that it is need to get the product done. Then you’ve to deal with raw materials, Hermes source and only use the best of the best for each Birkin’
