Hermes is a high-fashion, high-quality line of clothing and accessories, and the company's Dogon wallet carries a price tag in four figures. Before investing in a highly priced item such as this, keep in mind that there are many knock-offs and replicas of Hermes items, which makes it important to know how to spot and avoid the fakes.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Search for a code located just under the wrist strap. This is a date stamp, which should include the year the wallet was manufactured. All authentic Hermes items use this date stamp for verification purposes.

  2. 2

    Look for the Hermes logo on the outside of the wallet. A small printed logo should include the Hermes name along with a "Made in France" stamp.

  3. 3

    Examine the stitching. Many fake Hermes wallets show machine stitching that is exact and precise. Authentic Hermes items are hand stitched and have a unique, slightly imperfect look that is easily distinguished from a perfect machine stitch.

  4. 4

    Look for tarnished plaques and hardware. Authentic Hermes hardware will not tarnish, but many knock-offs will quickly tarnish and become discoloured.
