If you ever find a sticker in a Chanel bag that reads: ‘made in China’, then immediately back off. There are no Chanel bags made in China, that doesn’t exist (well, maybe not yet and if it does, you will be the first to hear from us). Originally, Chanel bags are only made in France. It expanded to Italy. And today, we even find Chanel bags made in Spain.

If you really want ‘the best of the best’, just buy a Chanel bag made in France. It’s like eating your cake right out of the oven, still hot and fresh. Yummie!

But is there a different in quality between made in France and Italy? Some people around the world travel hours to Paris, just to get their Chanel dream bag. With its strong and extended history, buying Chanel in Paris is the ultimate experience. The quality of made-in-France bags are impeccable.

A lot of designer brands has settled their production in Italy, that’s because there is a large supply of skilled craftsman available. There is no doubt that Chanel bags, made in Italy, holds the same quality as made in France.

But more importantly, you should buy your dream bag as soon as Chanel has stock. You have no power in negotiation if the SA doesn’t have your dream bag in stock.

  1. so I’m not scammed…can the ‘made in france’ be printed in gold lettering or is there an actual sewn on label?

  2. I bought my second boy bag from a reseller and it says made in Italy. My first boy says made in France. Are the boy bags made in Italy as well?

  3. Hi. Could you guys help me authenticate some Chanel bag? Thanks

  5. Hi so happy I found your site. Please help I bought a Chanel bag from an estate sale. The leather feels very real. I even took it to a leather appraiser and he said the leather was real. But I am still not sure if real. It has no serial number on bottom but from what I have read on internet old channel bags didn’t. Also whats throwing me off is that the little label says made in Paris. Its all black even the cc emblem I can send you pics if you like I have a feeling it’s a very vintage chanel bag. Please help thank you.

  6. I own a vintage chanel lambskin 2.55 flap bag.

    It has a small marking on the front CC logo but does not has the “made in france” on the other side.

    Serial number starts with 3.

    Is there a chance it might be a fake?

    • How old is the vintage? Can you post it on the forum. Chanel 2.55 reissue has been changed through the years, it doesn’t necessary mean it’s fake. Can you also count the stitches? Chanel has 10+ stitches per inch.

  7. I owned 10 Chanel’s purses and all brought from Bergdorf Goodman, Chanel boutique and Neiman Marcus. My bags One made in France and 9 made in Italy. I don’t have one that was made in Spain. If you in fact bought your bags at a well known name department store then you should not worry if it is a fake.

  8. it depends on what chanel bag we are talking about. There is always a small label on the bags and it tells where the bag is made. If it is made in France, then it probably come from a Chanel factory in a little town on the north side of Paris.

  9. I have a Chanel bag from spain too

  10. Aren’t authentic Chanel bags only made in France?!

    • No no, some Chanel handbags are made in other countries. They can come from Italy or even SPAIN, but DEF. not from China. Did you check the ‘made in…’ tag on your chanel bag?

  11. All of my chanels are made in france

  12. I have a Chanel made in Spain, does anyone knows something about that?

    • I know girls who have bought authentic Chanel products made from spain. So Chanel from Spain is still authentic, which bag did you bought?

      Sassy
