Thanks for your reply ,dear, I bought this one over eBay at cost of USD320,and I am asking for a full refund from the seller now,but the seller insists on the bag was bought from the Loewe Store in Texas,but can not show any proof of purchase,any suggests on that?

Should I ask any any experts issue a official docu for the Fake bag in order for a refund?TIA

Firstly, when i was last in Spain and in Cordova itself (where Loewe has origins) I was informed that Loewe is made in Spain. Especially the bags. I was in an actual Loewe boutique.

Secondly, I don't recognise the bag you have and have looked it up but cannot find anything similar.

There should be no smell what so ever except that of genuine leather or suede. Also, there is no strong smell. It is mild and not unpleasant.

The bag zipper is a different colour form the hardware and this is suspicious. There should be feet on the base of the bag. the finishing of the bag is also very unlike a Loewe. Are there any authenticity cards etc?

I do hope you did not pay too much for the bag and if you can you should ask for a refund. All the best and if you do want to a beautiful Loewe, try getting it from the Loewe online boutique. The send it all over the world straight from Spain! Good luck and I do hope I've been of some help. In any case, you should try and go to a boutique and get the bag looked at. In all my 'experience' i might be wrong and for your sake i hope i am...

Hi Supercindyy, I found the store in Dallas : Loewe Forty Five Ten, 4510 Mc Kinney Avenue. Dallas. I would suggest that you call them up with the serial number given on the bag. That would be the best thing to do really. Better still if you could go into the store with the bag and have them look at it. I do not have the phone number for the store but hopefully, you can look it up. I use this website for my orders, see if you can access it too and have a look for yourself: http://www.loewe.com/international/

Go to the bottom of the page and use the store locator icon. Also, get in touch with the store and see if you can place an order with them and if they will send it out to you. Good luck - US$320 is good money to spend but certainly not on a fake!

Looking at the pictures again, I am so suspicious because the tag with the "Made in China" and serial number is not even, well proportioned or/and well stitched.

Hi Boubbles, I don't recognise this model and have tried looking it up. It is suppose to be the Amazona but i don't think the Amazona comes with the Loewe logo in that style. The only bag that i know of that has the Loewe logo in the style above is Fusta. I'm pretty sure it's not the real thing so do be careful. And the zipper doesn't look right either. The finishing is not up to standard and also the colour is very harsh. The Loewe reds are absolutely beautiful. The corner caps of the bag are too big as is the key holder/cover. I hope this is of some help.

Doesn't look real to me :/. The "Made in China" gives it away.

Hi Helena95forrest. Welcome to PF. Do you have a link from where you purchased the bag? As for dating the bag, my best bet would be for you to contact your local Loewe boutique with the model name/make and find out what year the bag is from. I personally have not come across a Loewe Made in Spain for Birks... but then this is probably just ignorance on my part. I hope you manage to load some pictures so that we can be of further help. Good luck.
