Chanel remains faithful to its revolutionary aesthetics and simply transfers the typical characteristics of the iconic Chanel bags to its backpacks. In the past, the classic Chanel bag has always been reinvented and the same is true for the Chanel backpack. The typical Chanel logo and the quilting pattern have made the Chanel backpack an object of the desire of many women. Again and again, the backpack also gets new fashionable upgrades, ranging from used effects and graffiti logos to lacing for a subtle grunge look. Our conclusion: A Chanel backpack is a timeless classic that belongs in every wardrobe!

Fake Check Chanel Backpacks

Even a fashion expert can quite a pure Chanel backpack forgery. Before you decide to buy the models, please inform yourself sufficiently so that the risk of counterfeiting can be completely eliminated. Our Fake Check video as well as our magazine article can help. Because only with sufficient expertise you will not fall for a fake. Below are some other features that you can recognize as an original Chanel product. The legendary Chanel logo can provide a first indication of whether you are dealing with a fake or not. The logo always consists of two mutually facing and interlocking C’s. The C’s overlap. Above is always the right over the left and below lies the left over the right. The width of each C should be as wide as the gap between the two letters. For many forgeries, the logo closure is slightly rounded, for originals it is rather flat and angular. You’ll also find the engraving “Chanel Paris” on the back of each logo. The engraving must always be clear, relatively thin, balanced and symmetrically stamped. It is best to compare the logo with a simple picture of an original. Chanel uses only high quality genuine leather, which is much heavier than artificial leather and over time developed a natural patina. The leather must not smell of plastic, plastic or other chemical odors and should feel soft. Also pay attention to the alloys on the edges of the Chanel backpack, because they should always be even. In the case of fakes, the edges are often unevenly processed and show a lack of quality. When stitching, you should ensure that the quilted patterns as well as the logos are in a line. If you want to know exactly: It should be at least 10 stitches per 2.5cm seam. Even if pockets are placed on the front or on the sides of the backpacks, the stitching pattern is never interrupted. One can imagine this: A Chanel original is symmetrical in the pattern, which means that when two parts of a backpack are sewn together, the pattern has to be finished, so that it is complete, similar to a pattern wallpaper. Fakes are often simply sewed together from different pieces, so that a shift of the pattern occurs. The seams are another indication. For an original rucksack the seams are perfectly and accurately processed. The link chains are relatively heavy with the Chanel rucksacks, which results from the use of high quality materials. The seam of the leather is invisible because it is exactly where the chain straps are placed. In addition, the leather must lie absolutely straight in the chain straps and must not show any hills or other defects. On Catchys you will find a selection of authenticated partner shops with authenticity guarantee and buyer protection. This also minimizes the risk of counterfeiting when buying via Catchys.

Alternatives to Chanel backpacks

Chanel plays naturally in the first league, as far as luxury and design are concerned. Nothing like labels of Gucci and Louis Vuitton offer great alternatives to the creations of the traditional house. Both luxury labels are specialized in bags, backpacks and other small leather goods and therefore offer a high quality. If you are looking for an alternative to a Chanel backpack and want to enrich your wardrobe with a timeless investment, you should check out the “Queen Margaret” quilted leather backpack from Gucci. This Gucci backpack is an absolute eye-catcher and with its bamboo handle a dignified tribute to the legendary “Bamboo Bag” by Gucci. As an Allroundtalent, you can style the Gucci Backpack casual as well as glamorous. With the “Vintage Palm Springs” backpack from Louis Vuitton you have a demanding alternative to the Chanel “Graffiti Backpack”. Louis Vuitton perfectly captures the design of Chanel and interprets it with its own legendary aesthetics. The labels Love Moschino and MCM are likely to offer cheaper alternatives. The “Quilted Backpack Clutch” by Love Moschino takes up Chanel’s quilted pattern and thus creates an elegant must-have. However, the material is not a real leather, so you will have to make small cuts in the quality. For this, the Love Moschino backpack is suitable for any occasion, regardless of the season. Particularly cool and casual, of course, he looks like contrasting materials such as denim, silk and linen. But he also looks elegant and fashionable for trousers suits and business outfits. The “strong backpack” in medium black from MCM represents a more favorable alternative to the Chanel Graffit backpack and is made of textured monogram artificial leather.

Frequently used materials on Chanel backpacks


Kalbsleder is the main material from which the Chanel rucksacks are produced. The Chanel calfskin is one of the highest quality leathers and is predominantly of South American or European origin. The fiber structure of the leather, in contrast to the adult animals, is particularly firm and uniform. It feels cuddly and is nevertheless tight.


The famous Tweed, which Mademoiselle Chanel loved so much, is, of course, transferred to the designs of the Chanel backpacks, because nothing defines Chanel’s style code like this fabric. This is a high-quality fabric that is woven from wool and is particularly sturdy, durable, breathable and durable. Tweed has an extremely high wearing comfort as it adapts to the shape of the body.


Canvas is an extremely solid and water-repellent fabric made of cotton. Canvas is therefore very durable and is therefore ideal for the high-quality Chanel backpacks.

Chanel logo

All Chanel backpacks have the legendary CC logo. The logo is placed very prominently and striking and is usually made of pure metal. For the high-priced Chanel backpacks, such as the Tweed Chanel backpack, the logo can also be made of pure gold or silver. This is also reflected in the price, because the Tweed backpack is around 11,000 €. However, his resale value should be even higher because the iconic piece is no longer produced.
