You can recognize an original bag from the brand Céline by these features.
Like all other luxury handbag manufacturers, Celine only uses the highest quality materials. Since Céline bags are mostly made of real and high-quality full leather, they have a higher weight than counterfeit bags made of cheaper materials. What is often ridiculed but still proves to be an effective means is an "odor test". In this way you can often see in a short time whether it could be a fake. Leather just smells like leather. This test applies to all of the brands we offer.
With Céline, too, it is important that the seams are symmetrical and have a very high quality finish or sewn. At Celine and all other brands, counterfeits have unsightly and poorly processed seams.
Most Céline bags have the "Céline" lettering and the inscription "Paris" on the front. From 2008, bags must always have the accent on the É by Céline. The lettering is always neat and centered and is always clearly legible in the overall picture - in other words, no quality defects. In the interior of a Céline bag, a label reads “Made in Italy”.
The serial number is located inside the bag. It usually consists of three letters (capitalized) and four numbers. A Celine serial number is never unique. Say the same number can appear in different pockets.
