The giveaways of an authentic Hermès Birkin

The Birkin bag is a line of tote bags by the French luxury goods maker Hermès. Handmade from leather, the line is named after English actress and singer Jane Birkin.

Introduced in the 1980s, the Birkin quickly became a symbol of wealth and exclusivity due to its high price and long waiting lists. But this has also meant the bag is among the most counterfeited of luxury items.

In this video, Venezuelan model Alyz Henrich goes through the telltale signs of an authentic Birkin.
