The Birkin was developed in 1981 by Hermes Chief Executive Jean-Louis Dumas. English and French actress and singer – Jane Mallory Birkin was fortunate enough to have her seat upgraded by the commercial airline she was travelling with, to a first – class seat right next to Jean Louis Dumas. In her futile attempt to store her bag in the overhead compartment, she had spilled some belongings on the floor. Jean Louis took this opportunity to offer Jane a much – improved replacement for her bag.

In 1984, Dumas created a more prestigious replacement for Ms. Birkin and named it “The Birkin Bag”. In March 2012, Jane Birkin told The Telegraph;
“The bag was conceived in 1981. “I remember it well. I’d been upgraded by Air France on a flight to London, and was sitting next to a man,” “I’m not quite sure what type of bag I had with me – my husband, Jacques Doillon, had reversed his car over my basket, crushed it on purpose not two days before. Little did he know that on this airplane journey, when everything fell out of whatever bag I had, the man next to me said: ‘You should have one with pockets’. I said: ‘The day Hermès make one with pockets I will have that’, and he said: ‘But I am Hermès and I will put pockets in for you’.”

Each Birkin bag is handmade in leather and the prices range from $11,900.00 to $300,000.00. The cost of the bag escalates based on the type of leather or exotic skins that may have been used to create each bag. In an attempt to maintain exclusivity, Hermes eventually created ‘Artificial Scarcity’ by distributing the bags to their boutiques on unpredictable schedules and in limited quantities.
