How do I know your items are authentic?
At Bag Religion, we have a zero tolerance policy for counterfeit items. Authenticity is at the core of our business. We offer a Lifetime Money-Back Authenticity Guarantee on all our items, so you can be confident about your purchase through us.
Bag Religion’s Three Step Authentication Process:
Step 1– All luxury items are rigorously inspected by our in-house authenticity specialists.
Step 2 – In case of any doubts, we have also partnered with reputable third party authentication companies for additional feedback.
Step 3 – We proudly offer you an extra layer of protection through the use of an Entrupy* machine.
*The Entrupy machine is an electronic device that analyzes material surfaces with up to a 260X magnitude of precision and then cross references a data bank composed of millions of microscopic images of comparable items. With a built-in network effect supported by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technology, the Entrupy authentication system improves it’s accuracy with each scan. The number of times fakes have slipped through the system is less than 0.1%.

Am I able to arrange a pickup?
