Vegetable and Fruit Birkin Bags

Artist Ben Dezer and Hermès recently paired up to add a new surprising twist to the famous Birkin bag. If you are in the market for an edible handbag, then this pairing is music to your ears. Each bag utilizes only fruits and vegetables in its creation and incorporates even the smallest features that handbags usually have. Straps, buckles, everything is completely made out of fruits or vegetables. Who knew art could look and taste so good.
