Is my leather handbag real?

Authentic vs. Faux Leather Handbags

Leather handbags are quite popular, but how can you tell if you are buying “the real thing,” and not a very convincing replica. When you first start shopping for a leather handbag, and would like to discover if its authentic, spend time examining the bag. The authentic leather handbag would be made of quality leather, compared to an imitation handbag. If you are able to do so, compare the leather handbag to one you know for sure is fake. In this way, if there are any similarities, you can ascertain if the handbag is real leather or not. Real leather has a smooth and buttery texture.
To guarantee an authentic leather handbag is purchased, buy from a reputable seller. Purchasing your leather handbag from a retailer or store that specializes in leather will reduce your chances of buying immitation or poor quality leather. Always ask questions about the handbag to help ensure your leather handbag is authentic. Finding out as much information about how the leather is prepared and its manufacturer, can prevent you giving out money for a fake leather bag.
