  • You have a Dior bag
  • And you’re not sure if it’s authentic

Our expert Dior bag authenticators are here to help. Read this guide and compare your bag to our side-by-side images of real and fake bags to check yours.

How to know if your Dior Bag is real

Answer: Look at the label inside the bag — it’ll easily tell if your Dior bag is real. Fakes have the wrong thickness for their text and stitching.

1. Interior label

Dior bag - Real vs fake Interior Label
  • Authentic:
    • Same amount of space between each character.
    • Thicker “MADE IN ITLY” print.
  • Fake:
    • Too much space between the letters in “Dior”.
    • “MADE IN ITALY” is too thin.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Dior authenticators:

2. Outer logo

You’ll find this engraving on models like the Dior Book Tote.

  • Authentic: Thicker letters. Also placed closer to each other.
  • Fake: “PARIS” is too thin — and there’s too much space between the letters.

3. Handler

Dior bag - Real vs fake Handlers
  • Authentic: Thick and short threads.
  • Fake: Thinner and longer stitches.

Note how the fake threads are not dense enough. The real ones are more consistent.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

4. Stitching

Dior bag - Real vs fake Stitching
  • Authentic:
    1. Thicker, shorter threads.
    2. The threads are bigger.
  • Fake:
    1. Thinner and longer stitches.
    2. Smaller stitches compared to the authentic.

5. Oblique pattern

Used for this step is the Dior Saddle bag.

  • Authentic: The dot in “i” is closer to the vertical leg.
  • Fake: Too much space between the dot and the letter “i”.

6. Carbines

Dior bag - Real vs fake Carbines
  • Authentic: Thicker letters. They’re fit deeper into the metal.
  • Fake: Letters are too thin — especially the dot in “i”.

7. Interior

Dior bag - Real vs fake Interior Lining
  • Authentic: Stitching is thicker compared to the replica.
  • Fake: Thinner stitches.

8. Shape

We’ll use the Lady Dior as reference for this step.

  • Authentic: Wider than the fake.
  • Fake: Narrower shape.

9. Keychain

Dior bag - Real vs fake Keychains
  • Authentic: “CD” is deeper into the metal, hence why it looks thicker.
  • Fake: Thinner “CD” engraving.

10. Teeth

Dior bag - Real vs fake Teeth
  • Authentic: Smoother, less yellow teeth.
  • Fake: Very shiny and golden teeth.

11. Box

Dior bag - Real vs fake Boxes
  • Authentic: Thicker letters — none of them are scratched.
  • Fake: Scratched “D” and thinner letters.

Authentic letters should be 100% filled with paint.
