Is there a LONG Strap to carry a Hermes Birkin?

The experts can comment on this better than I, but there's no strap on my birkin, and the above picture is of a Kelly, which does have a strap....

No, as there is no hardware on a Birkin for a strap to attach to. Due to the design, it's meant to be hand carried. I think it would be very bulky as a shoulder bag even if it did come with a strap.

Yes, some "old hacs" have them with the dee ring on the hac for the ends of the canvas strap to attach to.

here is a photo of exactly what Docride drew for you, mine is a vintage HAC 32cm (w in circle) so approximately 17 years old. they are rare but are out there...but you can really only carry it with the strap if you close the flap, otherwise it hanngs open and far away from the body....i think they were made by special order if I am not mistaken.
