The customers can’t recognize whether they are purchasing the real one or not.

In this article, some valuable suggestions are given to differentiate a counterfeit Louis Vuitton luxury handbag and a fake one.


If the Louis Vuitton bag is made of leather, there should be coated canvas with leather trim and it must sense dry except oily, slippery or glutinous. The hardware should have been hard with metal brass instead of hollow with plastic & panted in gold. The name of the designer should be embossed in the bag.

The shapes of the hardware attaching an item together, like handles or zippers should be smooth whereas in counterfeit bags connecting pieces and ring hooks are normally rounded. The authentic LV bag contains a D-ring. For a square piece, the edges of it should be completely smooth and not sharp at all.

All the zipper & zipper pulls, purse snaps, buckles and other constituents in purse should contain the LV labeled on them. Zippers should move smoothly & easily without any stop.
Each metallic piece on a genuine purse should comprise of a Louis Vuitton engraving. It should be crunchy, precise and perfectly crafted. The logo demonstrating “Louis Vuitton” on round rivets should be properly circled.

LV purses are made of canvas having cowhide leather based straps and sidings, the edge of the leather should be dyed red. As cowhide leather oxydizes, the colors of the straps will be changed to darker brown with time.


The stitching should be completely smooth devoid of any loose threads or back-and-forth stitching at the end of a seam. Verify the seams for matching on the embroidery of a chanel bag, or the pattern on a Louis Vuitton. In the logo of Louis Vuitton, the letters should not be separated in a seam. When the pattern is shown on either side of the seam, it should match perfectly.

In classic brown Louis Vuitton bags, the color of the stitching should appear as mustard yellow except of a bright yellow color. It should be properly uniform in the size of the stitch along with its distance and quality. Any suspended threads should be a red flag.

In Louis Vuitton luxury bags, the number of stitches on one side of the handle should conform with the number of stitches on another. In a Speedy bag, the top line of stitches on a handle should be five.

No stitches should exist on the bottom of a classic Speedy bag, except for a special edition or variation.


On a genuine Louis Vuitton speedy designer bag, there should be a brownish cotton canvas lining except other types of linings.
Logo and Monogram

The vintage monogram on a Louis Vuitton bag is created with interlocking letters LV, where V is positioned little above L. The logo also contains a four-petal fleur-de-lys together with a fleur-de-lys inside a square and a four-petal flower inside a circle. There should not be any crooked letters, stars, other flowers or geometric figures on Vuitton logos.

On the authentic bags, as soon as a line from the stitch starts with a fleur-de-lys, it will be completed with the fleur-de-lys. When the pattern starts from the half-circle, it should be completed with a half-circle. The classic Speedy bag are produced with one piece of leather, therefore the logo on one side of the handbag should be upside down from another side of the bag. 
When the purse is created with Damier Ebene canvas, the logo “Louis Vuitton Paris” in a square should remain in the similar line on one side of the bag as it is on another.

The dust bag should only demonstrate LOUIS VUITTON or contain a monogram devoid of any supplementary information.


On a authentic Louis Vuitton brand, there shount not be any price tag or brand tag hanging from the handles. 

A genuine LV bag never accompanies with plastic wrappers around its handles.
