We’ve compiled an important list of Hermès Birkin bag facts to keep you on the up and up about Birkins, and we’ve included a video that displays the finer points between the real thing, and one of the many fakes we’ve come across.
Hermès Birkin Bags: The Facts
Every Hermès bag is handmade and hand stitched, so the sew lines should be flawless on an authentic bag. There shouldn’t be any stitches clearly out of place, out of line, crooked seams, or any irregular patterns on an authentic Hermès bag.
Any hardware on Hermès bags are always a precious metal, usually either palladium or plated gold that should feel heavy and high quality.
The logo is a stamp on the bag that reads “Hermès Paris Made in France.” On many fake Hermès bags, the logo will look irregular, big, or blocky.
There should always be a Hermès dust bag with a brand new Birkin bag. The dust bag is high quality, and will feature a high neat stitch count.
