- Check the pattern of the Bag and make sure it matches the real pattern repeat of the Zucca or Zucchino pattern. A genuine Fendi symbol consists of two interlocking F's, one of which is upside down. Apparently fake bags often use the letter L instead of the letter F's.

- Check the hardware. A close look at the details should show engravings of the brand name. Counterfeits usually do not have every last detail on rings and zippers. If the engravings are missing entirely, it is safe to assume a fake.

- Fendi bags made of genuine Zucca canvas have a silk content and are very durable. Fake Fendi bags are usually more flexible and made of inferior materials.

- Make sure inside lining is brown. Genuine Fendi bags always have brown linings, while fake bags are often green.

- Fake bags may have linings that have been glued on or have uneven stitching. Genuine Fendi bags have near perfect seam lines.

- Genuine Fendi bags are made in Italy and will indicate this by stating "Made in Italy". If the Bag bears a different designation or none at all, it is a fake.
