I have an ivory one nearby and here is it’s handle connection. Mine has kind of a patent but not really feel so I think you know what mean.
This one also has no stamp of Brahmin on the ring connectors. I’ve seen soooooo many with the stamp so just little stuff adding up that I’m questioning. ‍♀
Again, first pic off website second of this bag.

Not that part the actual ring it’s connected to. On Brahmin’s site it has it on the round ring. Mine doesn’t. Lol. Sorry I’m really bad at relaying what I’m trying to say.

okay - none of my Thelmas (i have 4) have the Brahmin on the round ring that the oblong ring with the Brahmin stamp connects to. Just the oblong connector.

A Brahmin can’t be authentic if it has a made in China tag correct? My sister bought this bag at Macy’s in 2013. How can it be a fake??

Yes they are not all made in the US - I have several from recent years that either say Made in China or Assembled in the USA. All purchased at the Brahmin Store.

Could this bag be genuine? No Brahmin label inside. No tag at all inside. Pocket on the outside. Looks like Rochelle otherwise, with a pocket outside. I have had many Brahmins of this generation. It really looks perfect, but I am suspicious.

I feel like I had this exact purse back in the mid late 90s. It looks genuine to me. Is there a little tag in the corner that says Made In The USA? I really, really think this is real and in perfect condition. I’ve had many, many Brahmins over the years and feel confident that this is real. Lucky find!

Thank you for your reply. There is no tag of any kind or label inside. The lining looks correct.

All the Rochelle bags I have seen have no pockets on the exterior, and mine does. This is the main reason that I am suspicious. I am attempting to sell it, but will not unless I am sure that it is genuine.
