THE PRELOVEDSTORY The story of the invention of the Birkin bag has become legendary among Hermès lovers. Actress Jane Birkin and Jean-Louis Dumas, then creative director of Hermès, were seated next to each other by chance on a flight from Paris to London in 1983. As the contents of Jane’s bag spilled out, Dumas asked why she travelled with a simple straw tote - Birkin explained that most leather bags were too structured for her taste. Birkin wanted something much more boho. The two actually came up with the design for the bag on that flight, on the back of an airsickness bag. Since its inception, the Birkin has changed little in style or function. It takes a single expert craftsman up to 40 hours to produce a Birkin bag. The stitch on which the brand’s reputation is based — the saddle — cannot be replicated by a machine; it takes two needles simultaneously passing through the same seam to produce a Birkin correctly. If done correctly, the saddle stitch will never unravel — either on a saddle or a Birkin.
