Fendi is an Italian name brand best known for its high-end clothes, scarves and purses. Fendi purses are lightweight and fashionable, and some even come equipped with hidden compartments, such as the "Spy Bag." Because Fendi is a well-known high-end brand, many stores, websites and street vendors replicate the products illegitimately. Authentic Fendi products come with an authenticity card, which has a serial number attached. If you want to validate whether your item is authentic, you can check a Fendi serial number by contacting the company.

Locate the authenticity card that accompanied your Fendi product. It does not matter if you bought a scarf or a pair of Fendi shoes, it will always come with an authenticity card. The card will state the product name, the style number and it will have the Fendi logo on it, including the phrase “Made in Italy.”

Locate the Fendi serial number on the back of the card. If you have a Fendi purse, the serial number may be embossed on the back of the fabric tag inside the bag.

Contact Fendi at 212-759-4646 or 310-276-8888 and follow the prompts to speak with a representative. Inform the representative of your intent to check a Fendi serial number for authenticity.

Provide the representative with the complete Fendi serial number when prompted to do so. Wait for the representative to provide you with the results.
