Are Chanel Bags From France or Italy?


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.

    Jiggaman is correct. They can legally make the bag in China/Malaysia then make the inside label in France and proudly say “Made in France”. I’ve had the pleasure of going to one of their legit factories in China. You’re paying for the cost of the real estate of the store that the bag is sold, nothing else.

    The only bags that fully European made are from Hermes. Contact an expert: contact Chery Lin at Mix Gallery in Lambertville, NJ. She knows all about it.

    Well, if on the bag says “made in Italy” you can be sure it was made in China and only the final “touch” was added in Italy. The whole industry is as fake as it can be. Only Burrbery officialy admited that they moved production to China. Other producers are using loop holes to decive customers that their products where made in Europe, when in fact, most of it is made in China.

    I have a “Uniform” chanel bag I just recieved and I believe it to be fake…it says made in Romania?
    To my knowledge they are not made in Romania…just France and Italy..
    Can you clarify for me? Also nothing matching up for stitching and the chains are so flimsy unlike my Grand shopper I own..

    • Cynthia April 15, 2015 Reply

      I can verify, Chanel bags are made in Paris, Italy and Spain.

    • Cynthia April 15, 2015 Reply

      Where did you buy it? And was it new?

    I have a Chanel handbag made in France. It has a serial number inside this handbag in a small plastic enclosure beginning with 939. This handbag zips on both sides. On side zips with a tassel on one side.
