PATINA AVENUE is built on integrity and we fully guarantee the authenticity of all the pieces we sell.
We understand the importance of our customers having complete confidence in their purchases, here is how we ensure the authenticity of all our pieces:
We only deal with authorised second hand resellers in Japan who operate under strict legislation that prohibits dealing with counterfeit goods. In Japan it is illegal to import, resell and deal with counterfeit items. All the resellers we work with have a second-hand goods dealers license and are registered with the Japanese government to ensure adherence to the law. These resellers all have certified in-house authenticators that certify items as genuine articles. We also conduct our own checks to ensure each bag matches the expected quality of its respective brand.
If you were to have questions regarding authenticity of a product you have purchased or would like assistance to arrange an authenticity certificate, we are more than happy to help you at firstname.lastname@example.org
