How to take care of your Longchamp?

If you already invest your hard earned money in an original it only makes sense to clean and maintain it right. To clean the inside of the bag you’ll need to vacuum it using a small handheld vacuum to pick up all the debris. It doesn’t have to be any special kind of vacuum cleaner, any cordless handheld vac will do, even the budget-friendly units that can cost under $100 will do. Then wipe it down with lukewarm soapy water and you’re good to go.

  • Your longchamp bag should have a diamond pattern in the outer flap of the bag.
  • Flap should have a rich tan color and if you look much closer you will see the uneven color of the flap.
  • Snap button should read LONGCHAMP 1948 not vice versa.
  • On the back side of the snap button you should read ORIGINAL PYRM 6/4B if you read other than this specially GUANG TONG. Its definitely a fake.

Here’s my video on How to spot the Not: Longchamp Edition!

Flap should have a DIAMOND pattern.


You should see or touch the logo from behind.
Longchamp bag uses YKK zipper. Zipper pull should be Longchamp then 1948. Jockey should be facing on the left.


Back snap button should have original prym 6/4b


The transparent tag where you will know the details of your bag.


The handle should be round not flat.


  • Check the back of the bag it says “MODELE DEPOSE” meaning original design.Please see photos below for comparison. Le pliage and LM Metal has almost the same aspect in checking the authenticity.


Always remember that all authentic Longchamp bags has this plastic disk.

Update on Spotting Longchamp Planetes

  • Plain LC’s like Le Pliage, Planetes and even Victoire are usually made in CHINA, ROMANIA, TUNISIA AND FRANCE.
  • Limited Editions Bags like Eiffel Tower and Statue of liberty and many more is made in FRANCE.



Here are some update on how you can check your bag’s authenticity.

LongchampLook at the jockey carefully, it has a long cap and it looks like a monkey. The snap button also should be straight and equally aligned.


You should also check your dust bag if it has a dark green string most fake has lighter shade of green.

  3. Hi,
    I just bought my first LC bag fr a mall in makati. However, no matter how I look at the flap, all i see is a square pattern, not diamonds. Is it possible that they will sell fake bags at the mall?

    I’m paranoid. Thanks in advance.

  4. Hi Arcee, I bought a longchamp neo bag (medium). I’m not sure if this is authentic, but the seller told me it is. It’s quite different with LC i have. The zipper pull is quite light compared to le pliage. And it has no YKK tag in the zipper. Also, the handle is quite flat.

  5. Hi, i’ve just bought a longchamp neo. I’m not sure if this is authentic, but the seller said it is. The zipper pull is light compared to my lc pileage. Zipper has no ykk tag. And the handle is quite flat. I cannot easily attach the strap, the ring portion does not fit with the buckle.

  7. Hi. Thank you for all the details. My close friend purchased a LC Victoire, but we can’t find any article regarding the size of the elevated logo on the front. Do you have any ideas?

  8. Hi Arcee.

    I just bought a pink large neo from a friend. She said it was original but i dont see the ykk t mark on the zipper.

    The original hydrangea pic has a different shade of pink from the bag that i have.

    The opaque tag says:
    NAC TUN/G2

    Please help authenticate.
    I feel this isnt the real thing. I feel bad because this is my first longchamp purchase. I didnt want to buy a fake one. If this isnt authentic, i should have bought from the store. That, or Ive should have bought another bag which i have also been eyeing for.

    Thank you.

  9. Hi Ma’am. It’ll be my first time to purchase longchamp bag if eve. But I really don’t know if it’s really original as they claim it to be (online seller). Will you please help me with it? Please. I really want to buy this bag as a birthday gift for myself. Thank you in advance. And thank you for this wonderful and very informative blog.

  10. I just bought my longchamp medium tote bag. It has ykk but it doesn’t have t on both sides of the zipper. Does this mean it’s not authentic? But the other features are okay based on your blog. Thanks!!

  11. The ykk zipper on my bag doesn’t have a T on it which makes me think it’s not authentic. But the other features are okay and can be passed as an authentic. It’s just the t on the zipper. I hope I can have a reply. Thank you!

  12. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  13. Good blog! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a great day!

  14. Hi. I bought a pre-loved longchamp bag (garnet color with embroidered hummingbird and flower) from my co-employee. I have followed the steps from your video on checking the authenticity. However, upon checking the (1) Zipper, it shows at the inner portion “VISLON YKK 5VST” and (2) The clearstrap indicates it’s made in France and the code is 1515386HT609. I don’t know where and how I can confirm it’s authenticity. May I ask for your advice? Thank you in advance. 🙂
