Buying a branded bag is like buying a car. You must take it very seriously and check every detail. However, we are often swindled and sold instead of some famous brand a simple imitation. That’s why MauFashion has gathered several tips that won’t let you buy a counterfeit bag.
Attention to detail
With replica handbags flooding the online marketplace you should check every bag of any famous brand carefully to make sure it meets the quality standards. Irregular seams, salted threads and any other type of imperfection are totally unacceptable. In addition, such expensive and branded things are usually done by hand, so if the seller starts telling you stories of production defects, something is wrong.
Zippers and zippers
Pay special attention to closures: zippers, buttons and other details like that look perfect, often they are given the mark that serves as a seal of quality and guarantee of the originality of the object.
For example, Hermes bags carry a Hermes Paris made in France stamp, have the year of production and the bag number on their strap.
Famous brands use almost no thick, stiff leather, opting for thinner materials but very good quality. The paint must be homogeneous, with no dripping or visible wear. At the same time, branded bags are flexible and restore their shape immediately.
Sometimes by examining the details we overlook the most important thing: the name. Many times the name of the mark is written in a different letter, irregular or with errors.
The serial number is the most important sign of authenticity. The seal with the number is attached in such a way that it is impossible to remove it or damage it. In imitation the seal with the number is often simply pasted on top.
Remember: an expensive brand always has expensive packaging made from high-quality materials. The packaging has no paint imperfection: no stains or color alterations. All additional accessories are always well packaged and make up the same set with the bag, never sold separately or given as a gift.
Before you go to the store, take some time to look for the special features of the brand you plan to acquire. Remember that each brand has its own unique details.
For example, an original Prada bag will never have a contrasting lining; the lining of the same shade as the bag is one of the characteristics of these bags. While the Dior lining is deep red with the brand logo. A different lining is already a reason for you to be alert.
