Designed in the the late 1980's, the original Birkin bag was named after the iconic Jane Birkin herself. After a brief encounter with original designer, Jean-Louis Dumas, on an airplane. She explained to him her frustrations with the inconveniences of so many handbags out there. He then told her he could design her the sturdiest, most convenient and spacious bag- and after a few preliminary sketches and visits to his studio, the Birkin bag was born. It is said to take 48 hours to make one Birkin bag with every thread hand-stitched; every leather wrapped handle handled with care; and every color simply one of a kind. With so many unique sizes, color and leather schemes on the market to date, the possibilities of the perfect Birkin are endless but getting your hands on one can be difficult.
