Fendi handbags earned a reputation for being lightweight and fashionable. But the high cost, and high demand, make fakes and knock-offs common finds on selling sites. Buying from auction sites might decrease price but it also increases the risks of getting a fake. The serial number of Fendi purses is the one non-stylistic method to determine whether a bag might be a fake.

Check the authenticity card that came with the purse. A Fendi authenticity card includes the product's name, an authentication number that includes the style number, the logo and a "Made in Italy" stamp. The style number on the card should match the style number listed on the leather tag inside the purse. The tag, embossed with the number, might appear in an interior or exterior pocket or in the main component of the purse, depending on the style of the bag.
Fendi bags also contain a fabric tag with a hologram on one side. The hologram image also contains a serial number that was sewn on below the hologram itself. Signs that the bag might be fake include a printed hologram number, a poorly attached hologram tag or a poorly rendered hologram image.
Perform a Google search on the serial number provided on your bag. If the search results are shady overseas sites rather than reputable sellers, the bag is likely a fake.
