The Hermes Birkin tote is the most expensive bag one can have in their wardrobe. Shilpa Shetty is carrying a flag bag from the luxury label. The cost of these bags start from Rs. 10 lakh onward. They are made of Barenia leather, which is of very high quality. It is basically calf leather with a smooth exterior. These bags have a natural glossy feel to them. Birkin tote bags are scratch-resistant and last for years. People pass them on from generation to generation as heirlooms. The leather is also water resistant.

We are sure every bag-loving lady must be envious of Shilpa Shetty. The flag bags are also a part of the Transatlantic range, and the one that Shilpa is carrying looks like one from that collection. The embellishments are made of pure brass. Last year, Hermes Birkin launched a bag for the Chinese market that was priced at US$125,000. It had the five stars that adorned the national flag of China. Every top celebrity in China bought the bag.
