About Chanel Bags*

The House of Chanel (Chanel S.A.) originated in 1909, when Gabrielle Chanel opened a millinery shop at 160 Boulevard Malesherbes, the ground floor of the Parisian flat of the socialite and textile businessman Étienne Balsan, of whom she was mistress.

The House of Chanel also presented leather handbags with either gold-colour chains or metal-and-leather chains, which allowed carrying the handbag from the shoulder or in hand. The quilted-leather handbag was presented to the public in February 1955. In-house, the numeric version of the launching date “2.55” for that line of handbags became the internal “appellation” for that model of quilted-leather handbag.

Beginning in the 1990s, all authentic Chanel handbags were numbered.

Over the years, there have been a wide range of designs and styles of the Chanel Flap Bags. There are many different types of leather and materials that you will be able to find. Originally, the Flap Bag was crafted using quilted lambskin, this is still the most common type of leather you will find the bags in. Another common leather is Caviar leather. Which is treated, grained calfskin leather, made to resist water. Both of these classic leathers are available in a great variety of colors.
