Hermes Birkin Size Chart

The Birkin bag took its inspiration from a previous Hermes design used to carry around riding gear in the 19th century called the Haut-Au-Courrois. Jean Louis Dumas was given the task of adjusting the HAC and scaling its size back in order for it to be more accessible. The making of one Birkin bag is handled by just one craftsman from start to finish. Production time will vary based on the size of the Birkin, but it usually takes 18 hours for a small 25cm one and 30 hours for the 40cm model.

The original Birkin bag was 40cm in size. In Asia, the most popular model is the 30cm one as it goes well with the diminutive stature of the people.
