There is no fashion passionate woman that doesn’t know a thing or two about Fendi bags, and most important: does not dream of owning one.

And the replica manufacturers have become so experienced that it is almost an impossible task to distinguish the original one from a fake.
The differences between an authentic Fendi bag and an imitation are so insignificant and so subtle that only an expert, a true expert could identify them. Nevertheless, there are some signs that can tell us which one is the real deal and which one isn’t. These very small details are: the tags, the fabrics, the craftsmanship and the colors used. Just follow these tips and you can’t go wrong!
The quality of the leather is the first thing you should check. Fendi uses only superior quality leather and there is nothing like it on the replica market. This fabric is so firm and sturdy that the bag will always stand tall no matter of its content. It will not make any creases or bends. It is also leather that has a smooth surface which feels very nice when you touch it. Do not ignore a nasty smell! If a Fendi bag smells like chemicals then it is surely a replica.
The hardware used for all the zippers, studs, logos, charms or metallic parts is of the best quality there is. It is impeccably crafted and also printed with the company’s name. Very important: all Fendi bag are delivered with a protective plastic layer over all the metallic parts of the purse.
The stitching needs to be perfect and in the same color as the rest of the bag. An authentic Fendi bag does not have any loose threads or imperfections.
Fendi uses to authenticate its bags by engraving its logo on the hardware or emboss it on the leather. Fendi does not print its markings. It uses rougher and more noticeable ways of stamping its name on the purses it manufactures.
The inside is as important as the outside. An authentic Fendi bag will have an interior covered in excellent quality satin which has a beautiful shine. Replicas use to glue this lining into the bag, but a real Fendi will always have a stitched lining.
Look at the tags! At the inside you will find the most important Fendi authenticity tags. The hologram sticker needs to be stitched on, not glued. It will never come off. Also, the serial numbers are sewn onto the materials. These are never printed.
A Fendi bag never comes cheap. If you are offered a Fendi bag at less than $500 then this is clearly a fake. Authentic Fendi purses cost about $500-$3000. You will never find one of its bags at a lower price.
And always compare! Compare the photos of the original bag with the purse you want to purchase. Check every single detail. Make sure that everything is right. If you follow these simple guidelines on how to spot a fake Fendi bag then you simply can’t go wrong!
