I am thinking to buy a white birkin but someone told me the white leather will get slightly yellowish years later. Is it true? If it gets dirty, can it be cleaned easily?

Yes, it's been known in some cases that the white leather could get yellowish in time. But no worries, H does re-whitening for its white bags.

Bunch of thanks.
If white birkin can get denim rubbed on it . I am worried. .......
Thank you for all the honest opinions.

that was another concern of mine. I wear jeans alot and I do carry my white one with jeans. I am just really careful and so far so good. I think this applies to any light color bags since the get tinted with jeans easily.

let us know what you decide on! white birkin is gorgeous!:P

Yes it will turn yellow-ish and it will get color transfer from your jeans. If you can handle sending it off to Hermes to get re-whitened and having it gone for a few months, then go for it! A white Birkin is lovely in the warm, sunny weather.......

Depends on your H store and how busy the craftman is. And there's no exact way you can predict when it will start to turn yellow. My white epsom is 3.5 years old, and it's still pure white.
