Where do replica bags come from?

Fake designer bags come from all over the place. Their production often takes place in countries with lower labor costs and lax regulations–think somewhere like China, Thailand, or Vietnam, where knockoff goods have become an entire industry. Sometimes these counterfeit pieces are made in factories that normally build legit goods during the day and fake ones at night. And there are even hi-tech underground facilities quickly churning out designer impostors using some very advanced methods and machines.

From my personal experience, I noticed that a lot of stores openly sold replicas in Bali. I also spotted vendors at the side of the streets in New York selling fake bags, making me realize how widely these particular items were being distributed across the world. But almost all of the replica bags I buy come from China.

Is it OK to buy fake designer bags?

There is no denying that this question comes up often when we are about to buy a fake bag, and it looks like everyone’s got their own take on the matter. It certainly makes for an interesting debate.

Not OK

  • Health Risks: Knockoff bags could contain harmful chemicals that don’t meet safety standards.
  • Risk of Prosecution: It violates trademark and copyright law.
  • Child Laborers: These bags are produced by kids across the globe in appalling and unjust environments with little-to-no compensation.
  • Supports Terrorism: Counterfeit bags fund terrorism.

It’s OK

  • Affordable: Fake designer handbags often become an appealing substitute for those who long to own the real thing, but can’t quite afford it.
  • More Options: By spending less, you open up opportunities to buy more and have better options.
  • Fewer Worries: Don’t have to worry about them being stolen or damaged.

As someone who has purchased replica bags for more than a decade, it‘s obvious that I am on the side of It’s OK. While I agree with the point of trademark and copyright point, it appears that the other three don’t really hold up.

First of all, the health factor, which may have been true in the past—but not anymore. Replica bags have had a quantitative leap in terms of quality; now, you can get some really nice material bags for an appropriate cost.

Secondly, child laborers. After dealing with a variety of sellers and understanding more about the industry, I can certainly tell that replica bags are not made through child labor – they are made by legitimate employees in a factory setting, just like regular items.

Thirdly, terrorism. I understand why many would object to businesses using kids as labor. However, the idea that this is somehow related to terrorism funding is completely absurd. While it’s unclear where this claim came from, Quora users have been arguing the idea that those are just advertising scaring people away from buying replicate things by claiming that the money will be used to fund terrorism.

How many people buy knockoff handbags?

There is an increasing number of people buying replica bags nowadays. Previously, there was a very popular Reddit group called r/RepLadies, which was mostly made up of wealthy people who bought these luxury knockoffs. Clearly, a greater number of affluent people are jumping on the fake handbag bandwagon.

Replicas are no longer viewed as solely an indication that someone’s social class. Even those who are rolling in cash, have come to appreciate the replicas for the great quality and total satisfaction they provide! If you want to know more about r/RepLadies, give this article a read. Plus, there are plenty of other sources out there like YouTube and TikTok with dope content about it.

Where do others buy fake bags & why I don’t?

I know folks who purchase knockoff bags on DHgate, AliExpress, Amazon, eBay, iOffer, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook groups, and the list goes on.

Personally, if I’m buying replica designer bags online, I’m not gonna go for mainstream websites. It’s a pain because they often have anti-counterfeiting policies in place, which makes the shopping process challenging.

Take DHgate for instance – it’s hard to know what you’re getting since practically none of the product pages show any brand info or logos. So you have to keep asking for photos to see what the bags actually look like.

And buying directly from platforms such as DHgate and Alibaba usually means a secure payment method. However, due to the platforms’ restrictions, this rule doesn’t apply to the replicas as many replica sellers only accept offline transactions and can only be contacted for purchase via WeChat and other methods. Not to mention Amazon, whose standards are tougher than the others.

I am also not a fan of social media because I’ve been burnt by them (as have many other blog followers) and it’s hit or miss.

Moreover, as they are not intended to be used for shopping, the search process seems to be more time-consuming and irritating, particularly TikTok—No direct search option means you have no choice but to scour through account names and can only hope that you can find the right seller, which is also quite risky.

Now you might wonder, “If these platforms are so bad, how come people still shop from them”, and my answer is because they’re VERY CHEAP. Take a look at the pictures above, most of the bags are under $50!

More than a decade ago, when I first got into replica bags, I made some rookie mistakes. I got sucked into all the available low-cost options, paying mere tens of dollars without considering the quality, and I know some of the readers have a similar experience.

From then on, cheap isn’t my main priority–I want bags made with good materials and craftsmanship, otherwise, I’d rather buy an ordinary bag with no brand name for under $100. It really depends on what you’re in the market for. If budget is the priority, it’s possible to find some good options there.

How to make sure the replica bag is high-quality? 

It’s not gonna be easy if you want to score a nice-lookin’ bag. You better have eyes like an eagle so you can check out every tiny detail. Here are some points you should pay attention to.

Overall appearance and feel:

  1. A perfect knockoff bag should closely look like the authentic one in terms of design, proportions, and dimensions.
  2. Also, check the weight if you can. If the difference is huge, it’s likely the seller didn’t do a good job with the materials.

Material quality:

  1. Leather/Fabric: Inspect the texture, smell, and overall appearance of the leather/fabric. Top-quality replicas should use genuine leather or the same fabric as the original.
  2. Hardware: Don’t forget the zippers, buckles, and clasps. They should have a solid and well-crafted feel.


  1. Stitching: High-quality fake handbags will have consistent, straight seams that are securely stitched.
  2. Logo and pattern alignment: Logos, monograms, or patterns should be perfectly placed, just like on the real bag.
  3. Zippers and closures: Zippers and closures should operate properly and with ease.


  1. Lining: Compare the lining’s design and pattern to the authentic bag to see if they match.
  2. Pockets and compartments: Check to see whether the bag has the same numbers and types of pockets as the original.
  3. Labels and tags: The internal label or tag should also have the appropriate brand name, font, and placement.

Spotting common issues:

  1. Look for typical faults in replicas of the bag model you’re considering. This info can make it simpler to spot inconsistencies.
  2. Compare the fake bags with images or descriptions of the real bags sourced from official websites or other reliable sources.

What should I buy first?

If it is your first time dipping into the dark, yet dazzling world of replicas I would suggest you go for a small item such as a purse/wallet.

This is an inexpensive, and easy way to test the waters of a seller you are considering buying from. Once you receive your first order, you can make a good judgment and decide whether the vendor deserves any more of your time or money, and make a decision about their quality!

What brand should I go for?

There is good news and bad news when it comes to deciding which handbag you should purchase a replica for:

  • Good News: There are good quality replicas for every handbag brand.
  • Bad News: Not every model of every brand will be available in a replica form at all – let alone a good replica!

So be careful when picking which handbag to buy a copy of – a good rule of thumb I always take into consideration is the popularity of the model of the handbag.

Basically, when shopping for a replica set your sights on a popular model since those tend to be more well-done as opposed to the lesser-known bags:

  • Less well-known models –  better to buy authentic ones to maintain the beauty of the original design.
  • Classic & popular models – I would never buy an authentic Neverfull since the replica ones are so well done, and I’d really be wasting my money.

Is it easy to spot fake bags?

It turns out that identifying a fake bag isn’t always as simple as you may expect. While some fakes come with obvious flaws, others tend to be more convincing, making it tough to tell the difference between the real and the fake.

No one wants to be caught lugging around a knockoff, so it’s important to know your designer labels that matched your aura and identity. In another word, if you’re living on a 5000 salary, you better not carry a Birkin bag.

There are some tips you can look out for when trying to spot a fake, such as:

  • Material: Genuine bags are constructed of high-quality materials, while counterfeit bags are frequently made of cheaper, synthetic materials. You can easily tell from the feel and smell of the leather.
  • Logo: Look for misspellings on the label or logo, the font, size, and placement matter since designer bags take pride in their branding.
  • Packaging: Authentic bags always include a dust bag, authenticity card, and receipt, so if any of them are missing, it’s a red flag.
  • Details: Fakes often have uneven stitching and flimsy hardware.

Grades of replica designer handbags

Not all replicas are made equal; they can be graded according to their quality. Usually, a higher price means higher quality. If you’re looking to buy a fake bag, don’t fall for the false promise of a “100% exact copy.”

However, high-quality replica handbags from China could turn out 95% identical to the real thing. Since most of us are not authenticators, I believe that is acceptable for most individuals. The luxury feel and appearance of the beautiful high-quality replica designer bags sure can deceive most people’s eyes.

Priced from low to high, these three categories stand for the“best” products: A, AAA, and Mirror 1: 1 Counter Quality.

  1. A: This is not strictly a highly identical replica bag with poorer craftsmanship. It looks a bit low-tier at a glance or touch.
  2. AAA: This is the bag with standard replica quality. It is what comes to mind when most consumers picture a replica bag. It usually uses ordinary sheepskin, cowhide, and other materials. The materials are soaring and affordable. And the price can only ensure that the appearance is close to the authentic product.
  3. Mirror 1: 1 Counter Quality: This is considered the best stuff since those bags are so good that they can be placed next to an authentic purse on the counter of the department store.

Obviously, they are good enough. Many sellers claim that they can mix the spurious with the genuine. Different names are the sales strategies of different sellers in the replica market.

Their craftsmanship and materials strictly follow the details of the genuine versions. They detach the hardware from each part of the authentic to open the mold.

High-quality replica VS authentic

Replica Chanel Coco Handbag VS Genuine – Which One Is A Replica?

Although sellers may hype up their products for promotional purposes, realistically there’s no way they can achieve 100% similarity to the original. However, when you come across a high-quality replica bag, it usually reaches close to 95% accuracy – which is still pretty amazing!

So, what exactly is this 5% difference? The material used for hardware varies, yet the ordinary person can’t identify the difference. The code is expired or invalid, but I know that people who place a large number of orders at once may ask for specific codes, which is useful for those who want to resale. I’m simply sharing what I know, and I don’t encourage you to do it!

Practical tips for first-time replica bag buyers

  1. Do your digging: Don’t take the easy way out. Research to make sure the replica designer bag you’re getting is up to par with the original. Compare design, materials, etc.
  2. Favor reliable sellers: Find trustworthy marketers with good reviews and feedback. Avoid buying from unnamed dealer shops or web pages.
  3. Examine the workmanship: Double-check that the replicas are made with solid material that won’t easily tear or show signs of wear and tear quickly (paying close attention to stitching, zippers, and hardware).
  4. Check prices carefully: Keep an eye out for vendors that offer unreasonably low costs for high-quality replica bags.
  5. Look at return policies: Better yet- go over return guidelines in advance. Stay away from dealers who don’t have a return policy or make it difficult to do so.
  6. Don’t forget custom fees/taxes: Shipping replicas could result in having them confiscated by customs – chat with your seller about it before finalizing your order. There may also be taxes owing after ordering a product from overseas.
  7. Stick to safe payment options: Protect your financial info – don’t wire money through unfamiliar channels of payment.

    I have a Constance to go, and I love it. The trouble is the hardware is getting pretty scratched up even with gentle use. I have another Constance to go I haven’t carried yet. I’d like to get hardware protectors. Is the hardware on a Constance 18 the same size?

    I’ve just reached the stage in life where I no longer care very much what other people think and I don’t embarrass too easily anymore! I guess maybe that is the definition of confidence lol! My rep Panthere is in stainless, so no yellow gold and I can’t speak to the accuracy of that. But a great watch otherwise! The 22cm is pretty small and delicate looking, but sturdy; it has more of a bracelet feel to it. I think it’s very subtle and IYKYK and I really love it! I usually carry LV, Gucci & YSL so I’m not really a IYKYK kind of person, but it’s definitely a classy piece of jewelry.

    Experts: can you wear a bag with a 20-22” strap crossbody (if you’re average sized?). Considering a YSL sunset and the chain is 20 if worn single. I think that’s too short for crossbody no?

    • Brynn
      December 2, 2023 / 8:39 pm

      I wear it crossbody or off the shoulder. I’m 5’4” for reference. Given I bought it 6 years ago but I can’t imagine the chains are that much shorter…

    Any suggestions for getting rid of Fufu smell? I have a bag I adore but the smell is too much. It has had an activated charcoal odor absorber in it for weeks but it still smells. When it first arrived it could fill a room now it has a good 4 -5 ft fufu sillage. Anything I put in the purse smells like fufu.

    • Xochitl
      December 2, 2023 / 7:27 pm

      i stuff mine with newspaper (it absorbs smell on the inside) and leave it out on the balcony where it’s shaded from the sun and rain, but has constant access to moving air. it might take weeks and lots of patience, but change the newspaper when it becomes saturated with smell and time will get rid of the smell

      • chill

      I’ve left my bag outside for weeks and it still smelled. If it’s as bad as you describe, which mine was, it’s just going to take alot of airing out time outside. Mine took over a month. I also put dryer sheets inside with the charcoal bag. I’d also replace the charcoal bag with a new one.

    I have an authentic YSL Envelope and I really do think it’s the perfect bag, the size is amazing and it can be paired with so many outfits, both casual and dressy. For interior organization, I recommend getting pouches to carry your stuff in.

    I’m not sure why but the LV New Wave has an immature look to me! That’s just my personal opinion though.

    So, my auth Polène Un as well as my Chanel C19 by PCC arrived today. Super happy with both purchases! The Polène is a bit lighter in colour than I expected but I can work with it. I had expected a darker blue as the colour is called „Midnight Blue“. The Chanel is stunning! I love the leather. Just ordered some leather honey to properly care for it and my other leather bags.

        November 23, 2023 / 10:59 pm

        I found the seller through a link in this post, and then it redirected me to another post. There’s a list of sellers and their contact information. Since I was specifically looking for a Chanel bag, I noticed that PCC specializes in Chanel bags, so I decided to make my purchase from them. There are other sellers on the list offering bags from different brands as well.

    are auth goods generally cheaper in Europe/USA compared to Asia? Trying to figure out where to go on vacation this year (not that luxury shopping will be the absolute determining factor, more like a perk on top). 😉

    • Remi
      November 23, 2023 / 5:16 pm

      You can get VAT back in Europe but not in UK until 2024/2025 when they resume the scheme.

    • GIGI
      November 24, 2023 / 8:07 pm

      I am not sure about Asia as I haven’t been there to vacation in a long while. However, luxury brands are cheapest in France compared to the rest of Europe, and NYC and LA. My hubby and I travelled extensively around Europe this year, and I managed to compare certain luxury brand’s prices in Paris, Rome, Milan, London, Amsterdam, and Zurich, and Paris had the cheapest prices. That was also influenced by the fluctuations in exchange rates between dollars/euros/pound sterling. We decided to do most of our luxury shopping in Paris for Chanel, LV, Dior, and Celine goods that we wanted to buy. My hubby was also able to snag a rolex watch in Zurich, and he said that was the cheapest price he had seen for that particular watch model he bought.

    • Orla
      November 28, 2023 / 9:22 pm

      I don’t know about compared to Asia, but I’m my impression has been that the prices are pretty comparable and the difference is in the sales tax! Depends on what your sales tax rate is at home versus what it is abroad and if the abroad country has a VAT refund program

    I want to get a black bag that I can use for day to night and have narrowed it down to the LV New Wave Chain Bag or the YSL Envelope. I like that both of these are soft vs hard/structured and that they have chains that can be worn cross-body or on the shoulder.

    Any thoughts on these from those who have these bags to help me decide?

    I like that the Envelope has the exterior pocket for my phone, but I like that the New Wave has sections in the interior. I don’t have luxury stores in my town to be able to try the auths out in person, so I am relying solely on photos. I ruled out the Loulou due to its puffiness (it seems to be bigger than I would prefer).

      I have a hard time understanding why they even posted these videos I feel like the fake was so good even I was fooled, though it really seems sketchy there’s no way that the “real” is actually real. Like are they trying to sell people fakes.

      I saw this post too! Not helping their case against “fakes” at all tbh

    Does anyone know where can I find Ralph Lauren Polo tshirts reps for men? Any AE/DHG store?

    Conditioning advice for a Kelly wallet? I just received it and it feels plastic-y. I’ve read the Hermes leather guide and have searched here for conditioning Kelly wallets, but haven’t found anything. Has anyone else had this experience? (I believe the leather is Togo.)

      Sure thing! I’ve got another post that talks about replica sellers and recommends some that I find good. You can click here to jump to that post or look for the “RECOMMENDED REPLICA BAGS SELLERS LIST” at the top.

    I’m trying to get a Chanel 19 in the cream color. Does anyone know what the official Chanel color is called? I’ve sent pics to my seller but they look white even though it’s supposed to be cream. How do I clarify that I want cream without being able to show the exact color since I can’t find a clear picture of a cream bag?

    I bought a fendi twilly off DHgate and it was such a fail. Partially my fault because I didn’t pay attention to the size, but I also had higher expectations for it because it was raised highly and the reviews were good.

    I’m going to wash it and give it to minipettygrey_doc to play with.

      Just received a lovely pair of Amina Muaddi’s from DHG. No other sellers seem to have metallics… Beautiful but they reek so I need to air them out 🤣

    Anyone can help with my hunt for a good Chanel Chevron Caviar CF Black rep? I’m a Chevron-girl through and through. I own 2 auth Chevron Caviar CFs in seasonal colours and have been eyeing a classic black one for very long, but Chanel prices and quality have really gone mad.

    Does anyone have a BV Arco tote or Cabat tote? Do you love it? I’m having a hard time picking one. Would love for someone to sway me in the direction of one of them!

      I have the mini Arco and it’s my fav bag right now. Fits everything I need daily. Occasionally I wish it had a proper closure but for the most part it doesn’t bother me

    Anyone had any experience reordering a confiscated item to the same address? My second rep ever got confiscated by FedEx (made it to my city). Not sure what I should do now or if I’m blacklisted. 🙁

      If you order again. you should try with a different name and different shipping method if possible.

      What does the FedEx tracking say exactly?

      • FG
        November 9, 2023 / 7:07 pm

        It made it to my city and then said “delivered” and “signed for by: CONFISCATED”

    Does anyone know how to soften the canvas of a Neverfull long-term? I left my bag out in the sun and the canvas was super soft and pliable while it was still warm, but after it cooled off it became stiff again 😭 I know it will soften with years of wear but I’m so impatient.. I’ve been using it as a daily bag for a few weeks now and it’s still pretty stiff

    • Rhys
      November 5, 2023 / 8:37 pm

      I know what you mean. I’ve had mine for about a year, and unfortunately, using it daily will be the best medicine for stiff canvas. I live in a hot climate, which also helps. When it first arrived, I gave it daily steaming, outside sunning, and daily usage (over-stuffed). I hope this helps!

    Anyone know a seller that has the 2023 Hermes “new blue Jean” color? When I’m asking them, they’re sending pictures of the old blue jean, which is more of a gray blue. The 2023 is more of a blue gray.

      I feel like it’ll be a while but I loveeee the new blue Jean and didn’t like the old one!

    Been eyeing the Ivy WOC! I’ve been on a rep hiatus so a little unsure whether to get auth or rep, especially because this is a newer model and there aren’t a lot of reviews about this one

    • Ellie
      November 5, 2023 / 1:02 pm

      I vote for getting the rep, and then writing a review of it. 😜LOL For the price, I find it very hard to go auth these days. And you can “try before you buy,” and decide if you want to invest in the auth.

      I’m in the same boat. I like the monogram but LOVE the cream empreinte, but have a hard time buying without seeing reviews

    Random question about LV dustbags – I bought an authentic LV bag around 2019 in boutique and the dustbag is a fairly rough textured cotton. Every rep I have bought since has a much softer (dare I say, more luxurious-feeling) dustbag. Did LV change their dustbags at some point or is this just one of those things that reps don’t do “correctly”?

    • Toula
      October 29, 2023 / 7:14 pm

      I think reps don’t have it right. I have Auth LV from 2018-2022 and the dust bag feel are the same if I remember correctly.

      Reps, depending on factory, the dust bags are different.

    All I want to say is that I want a tan puzzle. Just wanted to put that into the universe or should I say repeverse? Wow that’s a terrible mum joke isnt it… 😂
