1) COUNTRY OF ORIGIN TAG:  Any bag after 1996 should have a country of origin tag. SEE BELOW PHOTOS

MANY BAGS BETWEEN 1996-2002 WERE MADE IN THE USA.  IF THE BAG WAS MADE IN THE USA, THE LABEL ABOVE IS THE CLASSIC EXAMPLE.



ALL OF KATE'S LEATHER, SUEDE AND CALF BAGS WERE MADE IN ITALY(SEE ABOVE FOR EXAMPLES)


BETWEEN 1997-1999 KATE'S NYLON BAGS WERE MADE IN TAIWAN. THE LABEL ABOVE IS AN EXAMPLE

TAGS. EMAIL ME FOR MORE INFO.



MANY STRAW AND WICKER BAGS WERE MADE IN THE PHILIPPINES BEFORE AND AFTER 2002. THE TAG MAY LOOK LIKE THE PHOTO ABOVE
