Hermes is not so secretive when it comes to the production of their products, they actually inform their clients of how they source their exotic skins. This level of transparency is how Hermes remains the elite fashion house in the luxury industry.
The Hermes Birking JPG was named after Jean Paul Gaultier, the designer and mastermind of the bag. During his tenure with Hermes, he did a modern day twist on the iconic Birkin by shortening the body, extending the handles longer and including larger hardware. Making this a perfect shoulder bag.
