That’s a 2008 story but seems to be somehow true! Only if you (talking to ladies in this case of course!) are planning to purchase a carefully hand-made Crocodile Birkin Hermes bag. The waiting list for this could reach up to 5 years, but normally between 1-2 years (as if this is normal !!). Do we have to mention the price in this case? Well, simply it’s in the tens of thousands dollars range anyways, and what makes it even more expensive is the sense of scarcity those guys are making around it so to be perceived as unique. This video [here] shows how it is made. Whether Hermes still producing this or not, that’s another question.
The whole story can not obviously go without mentioning that those people make huge amount of money out of poorly dead animals !!
