A Hermès Birkin handbag is the World’s most expensive bag having sold at Christie’s auction in Hong Kong for $300,108 . The matte white Himalaya Niloticus Crocodile Diamond Birkin handbag which has been described as “rarest, most sought-after, most valuable” of its kind tops the last year’s sale of a $220,000 bright pink crocodile skin handbag by Hermès, which also sold at Christie’s in Hong Kong.
“This bag is made of Nilo crocodile, rendered in a subtle coloration that is meant to evoke images of the majestic Himalayan mountains. This dyeing process is painstaking and takes many hours to complete—the lighter the hue, the more difficult the process.” The dealer JaneFinds said
