The iconic Hermes Birkin bag is beautiful and functional, but they are very expensive. Such kind of bag can cost thousands of dollars, as the cheapest may be around $11,900. Original Hermes Birkins are famous for their months- or years-long waiting lists to purchase, because such high-caliber bags are rarely and very thoughtfully created.
