How does a Hermes Birkin bag lock?
The Hermes Birkin bags come with a lock and keys.
Birkin Hermes bags keys are enclosed in leather known as a clochette, carried by looping through a handle.
Hermes Birkin bag is locked by closing the top flaps over buckle loops, wrapping the buckle straps, or closing the lock on the front hardware. Hermes Birkin bag locks and keys are number coded.
An authentic Hermes Birkin bag or Hermes Kelly bag has an engraved lock and key set. The lock will have Hermes etched on the bottom, and the keys will be numbered to match the number of the lock. Note: There are a few vintage Hermes bags with lock and key sets, that will also have Hermes etched on the reverse side.
