If you travel more than one country in Europe, then claim your tax-refund at the last stop. Ask the SA or the manager of the store for documents/form to apply for the refund. The form contains all the details about the goods and where you bought it. You have now two options to apply for tax refund:
1a. Take the form to an airport, let the customs see it and declare tax-refund in an afilliate company there. You should go a bit earlier to the airport, ask for the location where the tax-refund is and then apply it there.

2. Chanel bags made in France (or other EU countries) sounds more reliable, doesn’t it?
3. Quality and craftsmanship reason.
