Fjord Leather

35cm x 26 cm x 19 cm

It’s become one of fashion’s most enduring tales: Jane Birkin was sitting on an aircraft next to Mr Dumas, Chairman of Hermes, in 1984, she reached into her handbag for her diary, spilled the entire contents of her bag and told Mr Dumas how she wished there was a bag better suited to her needs. He decided there and then to design a practical, timeless piece in her honour.  The Birkin was born.

Like the Hermès Kelly, it takes approximately 18 hours to hand craft. The highest quality leather, hardware, and stitching is transformed into a beautiful Birkin bag by one highly trained craftsman.

Fjord and Epsom leathers are much tougher: these have the advantage of a long lasting bag.  The fjord is textured and looks much like the clemence and togo leathers, but will not give if you push down on it.
