Hermès is one of the well-known luxury brands in Japan with low sales and high prices, and second-hand merchandise is difficult to come by. Kelly and Birkin bags are the similar examples. Each item costs between one million and five million yen. This is not unusual, so it will come as a huge surprise if the purchase turns out to be fake goods. This time, our attention will be on the Hermès handbags. We will outline the styles and features that are frequently found in knockoff goods so that even the untrained consumer can easily pay attention.

Hermès counterfeit products are high quality

Hermès’s counterfeit has the highest quality products than Louis Vuitton, while Louis Vuitton has the largest distribution because of the low distribution of Hermès and high profits.

There will be a significant number of counterfeit markets if there are many distribution channels, like Louis Vuitton, so even if so-called “rough manufacturing” is employed, some profits can be made. Many people want Hermès products, but there aren’t many originals available, so there aren’t many fakes to buy. Additionally, because the price is so high and the product is a super copy, the authenticity needs to be thoroughly checked. Furthermore, purchasing a Hermès Kelly or Birkin requires a one- to two-year wait, so we can introduce the corresponding fake level.

The points that inexperienced people can check are limited

Hermès products differ significantly from Louis Vuitton and other widely available goods, even within the same brand. The real points are very hard to see for those with little brand management experience. It should be done in trustworthy and reputable stores because it is inevitable that counterfeiters will be able to manufacture it at a high cost and it is difficult to distinguish the counterfeiters without checking the details. Regarding Hermès, there are actually a lot of significant details; I’ll share the ones that are comparatively simple with you.

A feature often found in Hermès counterfeit products, 4 points to distinguish fake

Pay attention on the stamping

All leather bags are between the clasp and the opening


Even though this engraved part is evaluated by the professionals, there are many places that need to be checked first in case the quality is poor. This part is often discrepancies. You can definitely see it clearly if it is a genuine product but for fake product the letters may be interrupted by sewing, and the letters may be unclear or thin.

Quality of leather material

The surface material of the bag typically reveals the difference between real and fake goods. In addition to passing the visual inspection, something must also pass the touch inspection. The carving is fairly deep, but the hand feels very soft if it is genuine. Fakes, however, have a shallower carving and a more similar texture, which can give off a slightly stiff impression. Anyhow, these are only slight variations. Instead of focusing only on one of the key factors to determine the truth, it’s important to compare your judgment to the real thing.

Use leather as an illustration. For instance, after purchasing used Hermès for a while, the distinction between authentic and fake goods is more noticeable than with brand-new goods. The stitching and stickiness of the leather are likely to happen because this difference is more likely to happen on the inner surface than the outer surface. It is typically a fake product, particularly if the leather is sticky. Fakes will bulge on the sides and harden the surface as a result of the leather aging, which is something to take into account.

Year engraved

Since it is engraved on the back of the belt for Kelly or Birkin, the authenticity can be confirmed through proofreading. The marking is most likely a fake if it is very shallow. Letters or symbols plus letters make up the majority of the engraving, but there are also hand-crafted engravings.

Pay attention on the dust bag

The dust bag, an accessory, should also be noted during the identification process. It is white or beige if it is real. It is orange if it is old, but it may have a shaded pattern and be gray if it is fake. Regarding the material, the genuine item is made entirely of cotton, but many imitations use polyester instead. The horse, carriage, and human logos in the dust bag are the parts where it is easiest to distinguish between the genuine product and the imitation product, even though the material isn’t all that different.

There are countless points in addition to these four. The ideas presented here might differ. Since each fake has unique qualities, it is impossible to list all of them, but these four are thought to be relatively simple for beginners to distinguish between the two. Due to the complexity that sets it apart from other brands, it is imperative that you pay close attention to details. Instead of just looking at it, if you really want to verify it, you can refer to numerous authentic web images and form an opinion.

Lastly, you may not be able to tell the difference unless you hand it to a professional for identification in some cases.

Hermes is also among the brands that have many fake products. Counterfeit products which they are produce the imitation at a high cost. For people who has less experience are likely does not understand.

The experience of touching the genuine products

For instance, reputable stores and specialty shops do not carry counterfeit goods. Of course, it is secure to give it to a qualified appraiser, like a recycling business. It sounds challenging to handle the genuine goods. For instance, I purchased a magazine of branded goods that featured authentic Hermes products, and I checked the pictures of the genuine products each month. Additionally, many people can examine various items with their eyes and hands more when they visit recycling stores for products from well-known brands, which can increase the likelihood that they will learn the authenticity.
