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.

    I am looking at a Chanel bag to purchase but the hardware on the top says Paris and hardware where it snaps says Italy and something unreadable. Is this a fake bag?

    My Chanel boy bag with the rabbit fur says made in France while my friends bag says made in Italy. How come this is the case ?

      Hi Sarah, Chanel manufacture handbags in France but also Italy. This is the reason. They used to make bags in Spain as well, but there is a big quality gap. I don’t think they make bags there anymore.

    The truth is from research.. Only haunte collection is made in France. Most of the luxury bags that goes to Chanel store saks etc .. Are not made there . I read from a journalist etc that luxury makers are GOING TO CHINA AND HONG KONG ETC . Let’s face it there WAY MORE ADVANCED CREATIVE AND THE LABOR IS CHEAPER . The bags stil is still good quality. But prade and Burberry have said they China making there items. While Louis Vuitton try to deny it but they having bags made in USA GERMANY Switzerland .. But they putting MADE IN FRANCE IN OUR BAGS ..not USA ! Come on people.. It’s all about money . Look at Louis Vuitton Vernis line I was purchasing a bag and some of the material is faded while the other in ones has a deeper print .. The price are increasing like crazy ..!! While the bags don’t have the same quality as the had years ago .. And Chanel medium are SMALLER NOW.. And they use to say our bags only made with calf skin but now your using lamb skin. I even seen a report saying deer etc .. I don’t know how true it is . Yes I love luxury bags but just like EVERYTHING ELSE IN THIS WORLD ITS ABOUT MONEY AND THERE NOT HONEST ABOUT THERE PRODUCT .

    As a sidenote, would you say that reselling bags that are made in italy would be harder than made in France? Even if the quality is superb? Do made in Italy bags retain as much value than made in France?
    I know with the classic jumbo double flap, they are all now made in italy and most of the boy bags are now all made in Italy. How would this affect the resale market if buyers desire made in France?

      Hi Luxetoter, most people purchasing Chanel bag doesn’t look whether its made, most of them are okay with made in France and Italy because both qualities are great. There are some people that prefers made in France though. But no matter where its made, it has never really influenced the resell price and we do not belief it will in the future. People will continue to look for the quality.

      Depending on the currency, but Chanel just increase the price in the UK due to the fall of the pounds. So I would say Paris.

    Everyone talks about looking for a label, card or tag, but couldn’t they make a fake label if they can make a bag that looks the same?

    • Cynthia August 20, 2016 Reply

      Hi Karen, what you’re saying is entirely true, even the leather can be real. However, to check whether a bag is authentic, you can compare the code on the tag and compare it with the purchase date of the bag. If the info doesn’t match, then it’s likely to be fake. Also, the best way to check authenticity is the craftsmanship, and how the bag is made as well as the structure of it.
