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.
Another great arm party tonight is a fun play on the Cartier Love bracelet. You take a Cartier rose gold love bracelet, a Cc Skye spikey take on a love bracelet, a leather bracelet with screws by Cc Skye, and a Hermes barenia leather etruviere double wrap bracelet and you have a fun party!
Send me your photos to be featured in a arm party feature next week.
You know those gnome photos people take when they travel? Why not start a new tradition where you post photos of your Hermes birkin bag when you travel. For instance Jane Birkin would appreciate this photo of the well used Hermes aged barenia leather birkin stuffed with daily essentials being used while hanging out watching surfing in Waikoloa on the Big Island of Hawaii Kona. After all the original design for Jane Birkin by Hermes was to give her more function from her Kelly bag. The birkin is made to hold stuff and this is how the bag ia being used. Bags should be used and the birkin bag in the 35cm was made to be used.
