This Birkin bag is done in Natural Barenia Leather, a luxurious version of Hermes's saddle leather. This bag features two rolled leather handles, Brushed Gold Hardware, 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 includes two keys, a lock, and a clochette.

    This bag is in Good Condition. There is scratching to the hardware, scuffing and scratching across the leather, and darkening along with scuffing to the base corners from wear. There is patina to the hardware, the handles are patinated from wear, and there is discoloration in places. The leather is creased in places, and there are a few stray black marks. There is a swing mark underneath the touret from contact with the lock, and the resin is worn thin in places. The interior is scratched, scuffed and dented from wear, and there are a few white smudges and stains to the interior leather.
