How to Tell If a Louis Vuitton Handbag is Fake

Louis Vuitton Malletie is a French fashion house design of leather goods, clothing, joelharia and luxury accessories. The Louis Vuitton brand, along with its symbol, was ranked as the most valuable brand in the world, according to a study by Millward Brown in 2010. Due to the status associated with the brand image, Louis Vuitton is one of the most Counterfeiting in the fashion industry.

Although counterfeit handbags are widely available and look true, having the knowledge of the product, you can tell if a Louis Vuitton handbag is fake and make sure that what you are buying is authentic.


1 Note the placement of the monogram, commonly known as the LV logo. The “V” should be slightly above the “L”. In general, the “L” goes through the bottom left of the “V”. The monogram should be symmetrical from side to side.

2 See the stitching patterns along the Louis Vuitton handbag. The design bags are made with special care, even along the seam. The Speedy pocket always has five stitches through the leather guide where it meets the handle. Compare, if possible, two Louis Vuitton handbags side by side to identify the number of stitches placed in the bag. You should see if the stitching is the same for each bag.
3 Try to make the bag one-of-a-kind or multi-colored text monograms. A Louis Vuitton handbag with various colors may be a sign that it is fake, since only the Speedy 30 and the Milla Pochette PM are multicolored. The Speedy 30 can be identified by the Damier canvas bag with a rounded shape, especially on the sides. The Milla Pochette PM is a small bag, the identification of the mark appears in the upper front center point of the bag, and on both sides it finds the gold chain fastening.

4 Backpacks, bags and all vintage pieces should have a yellow-green coloration. The leather upholstery around the purse should also have yellow stitching with white authenticity cards. These are part of a set of measures that also include the LV label. Any seam that is not yellow in color, or a card of authenticity that is of a color other than white, demonstrates that the bag is not authentic.
