The Birkin bag can be seen as a totem of the luxury house Hermès. Introduced in 1984 the handmade leather bag is today one of the most expansive pieces worn by various celebrities.
Prices range from $10.500 to $150.000. These prices are explained by the costs of materials and a special craftsmanship. The bags are distributed to Hermès boutiques on unpredictable schedules and in limited quantities, creating scarcity and exclusivity.
The bags have become a status symbol since Hermès introduced them.
