HOW TO SPOT A FAKE BIRKIN
Below are a few tips to help you recognise a fake Hermès Birkin bag
Each year, Hermès produces lists of colors and leather options. They ensure that the leather matches with the color so keep in mind that all colors are not made in every type of leather.
Birkins come in a variety of leathers, including taurillon novillo, box calf, Chamonix, togo, taurillon clemence, veau swift, epsom and fjord. Exotic leathers include alligator, crocodile, lizard and ostrich. You may also come across what is known an as Hermès HSS. These are bags made under special order, and the color/leather combination may be different than other types of Birkin handbags.
