How to tell if a Loewe bag is real

Answer: Check if the interior “LOEWE” text has the same thickness for all letters. The same applies to its stitches!

1. Label

Loewe Bag Fake Vs Real Label
  • Authentic:
    • Thicker “Made in Spain” text.
    • Every thread is perfectly aligned — also shorter than the fake stitches.
  • Fake:
    • Text is too thin.
    • Stitching is crooked and longer than the authentic.

2. Leather

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.

5. Handler

6. Flap logo

  • Authentic: Fit deep into the leather, having a bold look.
  • Fake: Not fit as deep as the real one — hence why it looks thinner.

7. Strap

Also known as the belt of your Loewe bag.

  • Authentic: Thinner stitches, angled at around 15 degrees.
  • Fake: Thicker and straight stitches.

8. Stitching

We’ll look outside the bag — on the leather panels.

  • Authentic: Thinner and a bit longer threads.
  • Fake: Thick, small, and boxy stitches.

9. Carbine

  • Authentic: Thicker, more solid text.
  • Fake: “LOEWE” is too thin.

The genuine bag’s text is fit deeper into the metal That’s why it looks thicker than the replica.

10. Dust bag

Both dust bags below are in the same picture.

There is no picture size difference between the two.
