From what I've heard, some counterfeiters are using the exact same exotic materials Chanel uses for their for their more expensive range - snake skin, crocodile skin and the like. And by increasing their quality of manufacture; they would be 99.99% identical to their real counterparts - and fakes can only be found by Chanel's line own experts. Of course, such high quality fakes are often quite expensive in their own right. (50% of their real counterparts) and demand for such hasn't taken off. (To our relief..) I've attached a few photos of some of the more convincing fakes being manufactured - besides the blatant fake Chanel tags, and dodgy care booklets; some these bags seem could easily be passed off as the real thing if not closely inspected. Enjoy!
