The Birkin bag, made by Hermes is perhaps the most popular and sought after of all the replica designer handbags in the world right now. Even if it’s not your favorite, it’s hard to deny the popularity of the iconic handbag. It’s incredibly hard to come by, adding to its intrigue and popularity. Below you will see a list of little-known things about the new favorite replica designer handbags.
It All Started With A Basket
Some of you may know this story, but we are going to share it anyway. The designer got the idea for this handbag from a fashion icon named Jane Birkin. She was sitting on a plane next to the CEO of Hermes, struggling to keep all of her items in her basket. The basket had been deliberately run over by her husband a few days prior, leading to the idea of creating a bag that is stylish and practical.
After talking with Birkin for a little why, the Hermes CEO made a rough design on one of those vomit bags, also known as barf bags that the plane provides. It was this barf bag that held the next big design in handbag fashion.
One At A Time
Contrary to the handbag collectors of the world, Birkin only uses one bag at a time. This is a stark contrast compared to the shelves of Birkins that collectors admire. Birkin uses one bag until it is wrecked, then she buys a new one and auctions off the old bag for charity.
Hermes pays Birkin a royalty every year in order to use her name. This is entirely donated to charity by the humble Birkin. The telegraph reported that this amounted to £30,000 in 2012. Every single year the fashion icon donates thousands of dollars to charity through her various fund raising endeavors.
