    Hermes 32cm Natural Barenia Leather HAC Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware
    Good Condition
    12.5" Width x 10.5" Height x 6" Depth
    The HAC, or "Haute à Courroies" Birkin bag is a highly coveted variation of the classic Birkin bag, exhibiting a taller stance and a luggage feel. This HAC Birkin bag is done in Natural Barenia Leather, featuring Palladium Hardware, creating a beautiful neutral combination that any Hermes lover can admire. This bag features two rolled handles, and a flap top with a turnlock closure. The interior is done in Fauve Chevre Leather, featuring one slip pocket and one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Good Condition. There is scratching throughout the leather, which is typical of delicate Barenia Leather. There is scratching to the hardware, and a few deep scratches on the plaquees. The touret is chipped and there is black patina to the hardware. The base, base corners, and base edges have black stains and scuffs, and the base corners show lightening from wear. There is light creasing to the leather in the gusset. The interior leather is scratched and indented at the base, and there is lightening from wear underneath the flap. The keys, lock, and clochette are missing. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag.
