Wondering if your Fendi bag is real? Need to check it?

Read this article and compare your bag to our side-by-side real vs fake images.

How to Tell if a Fendi Bag is REAL

The short answer – Tell if a Fendi bag is real by checking the interior label. The stitches should be thin and not very thick.

1. Interior label

  • Authentic: Thinner details
  • Fake: Text and stitching are too thick.

Too difficult? Let our team of expert Fendi authenticators take a look at your bag:

2. Flap

3. Buckle

  • Authentic: Thinner, slimmer letters.
  • Fake: “FENDI” text is too thick.

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. Side

  • Authentic: Deep stitching, making the bag look bulkier.
  • Fake: Stitching isn’t as deep — hence why it looks slimmer.

5. Handler

7. Bottom
