8 general signs on how to spot a fake designer handbag!

Many of us are luxury brands lovers. Sometimes we prefer to purchase a secondhand bags because they are still relevant and you can get them with lower price and some are vintage and you need to keep one!

These are the general signs to look out for when making a secondhand purchase. BEWARE OF SCAMMERS & FAKE SELLERS!

Price is too good to be true

You might wanna research the market retail price & the resell price of your desire bag. Even some price might be cheaper but it can't be too cheap compare to others.

Check the quality of the material the bag is made from

This can be the first giveaway of a counterfeit product. If the item is supposed to be leather, it should feel and smell like leather.

Take a close look at the hardware

It should feel solid rather than hollow and shouldn't chip.

The stitch work is another area to pay careful attention to

Bad craftsmanship here is often a key giveaway. Uneven, slanted or back-and-forth stitching is a sign of a poorly made item.

A cheap lining is another clue to look out for

Feel the quality and carefully inspect the colour. Counterfeiters often work from photos, which can distort the tone of the lining colour, leading to them using the wrong shade.

The logo is another easy slip-up area for counterfeiters

It's really all about the detail here, so make sure you're aware of the particularities of the brand logo.

Check the pockets

Does the bag you're looking at have the correct number of pockets in the right placement for that particular model?

Finally, check the inner label for any discrepancies

Is the logo centred, should there be a hologram or a serial number? If there's a serial number, is it in the correct sequence? The best thing to do is to check it against one that you know to be the real deal.
