While it is not always easy to tell if a Burberry is authentic, there are certain details dedicated to the workmanship of an authentic Burberry. These details include the materials, such as the Nova Check or vinyl coated canvas, which are durable and resistant to stains.
An authentic Burberry is carefully sewn with the seams neat and straight, and the pattern of stripes is perfectly horizontal and vertical. The color tag should match the lining. In addition, the back of the tag should read "MADE IN ITALY." Similarly, the zipper should display Burberry on both sides. Imitation materials are often unevenly colored and poorly constructed. If purchasing online, buyers should ask sellers where they originally received the bag and if it is currently in their possession.
