Hermès? Birkin bag? $40?

August 29th, 2011 | By The Studio Staff

It first caught our eye last winter in The New York Times; a well constructed canvas tote with the iconic Hermes Birkin bag silk-screened in its entirety. We were determined to find it and use it as a fund raiser for the Women’s Health Center @ The Dana Farber. The bag now retails for $40 (price increases along the way) and we contribute $10 for each bag sold. We have already written an $800 check and hope to add to it this coming season.

You can’t imagine the feedback and stories we’ve gotten from satisfied customers. One tells us of walking down the street and being accosted by a man driving by, “where’d you get that bag?” and Marcie’s daughter climbing the stairs to a barre class and meeting a young women, a fashion blogger, carrying her Birkin tote and writing about their conversation and The Studio on her blog within hours.
