France or Italy?

My '08 black metallic 226 was made in France.

Just want to see if they made more in France or Italy.

Does any one know if there'a a difference?

Metallic reissues: my 228 and 225 say Italy on them; the 226 and 227 say France.

Chanel has two factories - one in France and one in Italy. IMO, it does not matter which factory my bags are made. But just for the record:

2006 2.55 distressed leather in black in the 226 says Made in France.
2008 2.55 metallic navy and green in the medium size also says Made in France.

I think all reissues were made in France until just recently. I've noticed that all 2008 metallic 225's were made in Italy.
