The World Most Expensive Handbag: THE BIRKIN by HelenaMag: 10:49am On Oct 23, 2015
The large highly priced tote was created and named after the English born actress and singer Jane Birkin who spent many years in France. On a flight she shared with the CEO of Hermes, Jean Louis Dumas from Paris to London, she complained about her struggle to find a functional leather bag suitable for the weekend and how she opted for her straw basket. With this in mind, Dumas took three years to design a bag that reflected Jane’s taste and style.

This encounter spurred the birth of the iconic Birkin Bag.

It takes an average of 48 hours to create a single Birkin bag and they are priced between ranges of $9,000 to $150,000 depending on its size, colour and the materials used.
