Hermes Matte Niloticus Himalayan Crocodile, handcrafted by the artisans of Hermes into an iconic 30 cm Birkin from 2014.

The interior is lined in chevre goat leather. One large zipper pocket with Hermés engraved zipper pull and one patch pocket. Stamped with a star craft-mans mark, R inside square stamp denotes 2014, and 2 dots denotes Niloticus Crocodile. Includes box, dust bag, paperwork, rain jacket, lock, keys and clochette. Made in France.
Note: When Hermes' own Jean-Louis Dumas sat down next to Jane Birkin on a flight he had no idea he was about to create history. When Jane Birkin discussed her need for a sizable (yet chic) weekender, Dumas immediately got to work designing the perfect bag for her needs, and in 1984 we were introduced to the Birkin, which would quickly become the most coveted bag in history thanks (in part) to the 48 hours it takes to hand-assemble this exquisite piece as well as the extensive wait list you'll need to join to purchase one from stores.
