Hermes Birkin Barenia 35CM BAG – HOLY GRAIL of Birkins – AT this point thanks to the Kardashians everyone know what a Hermes Birkin bag is – but do any of you know what the Barenia birkin is? The Barenia leather in the birkin bag is considered the holy grail of the birkin leathers because it is no longer being made and is the natural vegetable dyed leather that is still used today to make the Hermes horse saddles. They made a few of the barenia leather bags in the 90’s and then stopped making the barenia bags because of the leather shortage that Hermes started experiencing in finding high quality leathers to make those barenia birkin bags. The barenia leather is the most exquisite velvety leather to the touch and anyone who can get their hands on a barenia bag will usually never let it go. Every so often you will come upon a barenia bag and usually it is never the right size, but once in a long while you will find the 35cm and it will be in great condition and then it is just whether or not you can get your hands on it fast enough. The Barenia leather is a leather that is meant to be enjoyed and worn in. Just like the leather on the Hermes horse saddles, the patina will continue to darken with age and take on the gorgeous cognac tone. Some scratches will happen on the bag and that is all part of the leather’s natural personality and is for the woman who is a real collector of the Hermes bags. If you own Hermes bags and do not own the barenia leather you must own this one. It is really a collector’s piece.
