Gucci is unique. Not only do they use materials rarely used by others (ostrich, horse skin, rabbit fur, bamboo to name a few) but they have an entire history of patterns, details, trinkets and logos (the GG, the horse bit, the Guccissima leather, the web detail) that have meaning within the Gucci world and come often paired with other features. You got to know your stuff girls!

Every Gucci Bag Has It’s Variations

The first thing to know is that, more so than other designers, Gucci does the same bag style in multiple different materials regularly. Another important thing to keep in mind is that they often name their bags by the canvas used. So if you’re used to seeing the Gucci Charlotte in GG canvas for instance don’t automatically assume you’re looking at a fake just because you see one in black leather.

The Gucci site is great for this, since they break down each bag style into its variations and list the materials for each one. You can also plug the name of the bag and the material you’re interested in (Gucci Boston Metallic for example) into a Google search, and if it’s been made, it will totally have come up in the blogs somewhere.

Remember: you can’t necessarily assume that a certain Gucci bag doesn’t exist because it’s not up on their site though. They highlight mostly new styles (their current spring/summer, fall/winter) and the classics. If you really need to know (and by all means you should make sure before you buy a replica of a bag that might not exist) there is one surefire way: Post your question on a few blogs.

Post it here if you like, I or any Gucci expert would totally be able to tell you if, the Gucci Hobo in ostrich skin exists…and don’t laugh, it does!

How to Spot a Gucci Replica by Material

What they often do at Gucci is take a broad category of bags like: Large tote, Hobo, Boston, Top Handle and then produce it in a variety of motifs. The combination then becomes the name, more often than not. This is why you’ll come across a bag called The Gucci Medium Tote in Black Guccissima Leather. Not exactly catchy, but very clear…and, what? Are you going to tell Gucci they’re doing something wrong?

Gucci motifs are either special limited editions (like Kate Moss’s bag above) or standard patterns that they use for all different bag designs. What this means is that if you want to know how to spot Gucci replica handbags, it’s all the more important to know the features of each common Gucci pattern.

Gucci Design Features

GG Canvas

The GG (the initials of company founder Guccio Gucci) is Gucci’s monogram. It is the most recognizable Gucci icon, and you can find pretty much any of their bags in this style. The most common is a sand/ebony color combination.

Most of us are used to seeing it in the soft Gucci fabric, but beware! Many of the new bags feature a glossy Crystal version that’s stiffer, and shinier.Buy-Now

This is essentially Gucci’s leather monogram. Guccissima bags are embossed with the same GG pattern as the canvas to make a textured, and very supple leather. Spot a fake by a stiff leather, a print rather than embossed leather or an imperfect GG.

Super common and often in different color schemes, but most commonly in turquoise, black, white (and always in 3 colors). The horse bit is a nod to Gucci’s equestrian beginnings. The soft, shiny material of the interior fabric will be covered in a web of 2 toned horsebits. But keep in mind that this is not a rule, especially with new released models.

The most recognizable Gucci “equestrian” feature. The web is a tri-colored strip usually placed at the center of the bag. The most common coloring is green/red/green. Sometimes it will have a golden GG in the center, or a horsebit over top of it. The coloring and rough, canvas texture have to be exact! The Web detail is most commonly used on GG canvas styles, but sometimes you can see it on leather bags too. I love the Gucci Vintage Web Boston bag, it’s one of my favorite purse; if you like it too, you can find it on our site

A horse bit is a metal bar attached to the reigns that goes in a horse’s mouth. To see one crisscrossed over a Gucci bag (like most Boston bags for instance) is a very common feature. This is Gucci’s most direct reference to equestrian style.

Gucci famously used bamboo for handbag handles, first during the leather shortage in WW2 and ever since. They also use it on tassels, drawstrings, and zipper tags. Bamboo has a very particular texture, so look closely.
