An enduring classic, the clue’s in the name with the Signature Leather backpack and it’s easy to see why.

Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé Backpack
It’s hard to choose what we love most about this backpack. It could be the quilted chevron detailing, the gold-toned hardware, adjustable shoulder straps, or perhaps the signature double G logo on the front flap. Or it could be all of it. Either way it’s a coveted style that we just can’t get enough of.
How To Care For Your Gucci Backpack
There are a couple of different things you can do to ensure your backpacks will remain looking their best for years to come.
Firstly, as Gucci backpacks are made using specially selected materials that customers would expect from this luxury brand, start by handling these products with care and cleaning with a soft, dry cloth. Avoiding using any cleaning products or leather protectors on these backpacks.
Backpacks should be protected from direct light, heat and rain. Be careful not to get the backpacks wet and, if you get caught in a downpour, make sure to dry your backpack immediately, using a soft dry cloth, to avoid any unwanted stains or water marks.
Placing heavy products in your backpack may comprise the shape of the bag and affect the silhouette. To ensure backpacks keep their shape, when not being used, you can fill your backpack with tissue paper. This will also help absorb humidity which could otherwise affect the shape of your backpack.
You should always store your backpack in the provided flannel bag, this will protect it from dust and dirt.
- Are Gucci backpacks made of leather?
- Many of Gucci’s backpacks are made using leather, such as the Signature Leather backpack and the Rabelle bag. Some of Gucci’s favorite styles like the GG Marmont backpack are available in leather, but also come in velvet too. Gucci is also well known for using canvas in some of its most popular bags. Styles like the GG Supreme Bees backpack are made from canvas and finished with leather trims. All styles also have the brands signature logo, either embossed or printed on the material, or detailed on the hardware.
- Do Gucci backpacks have a warranty?
Not that we needed any more reasons to invest in a Gucci backpack, but the company’s lifetime warranty certainly makes it hard to resist our favorite pieces. If the backpack is found to be faulty, Gucci will replace it with the newest model in the same price range.
- How can I spot a fake Gucci bag?
Gucci backpacks are made in the Tuscan town of Prato, just on the outskirts of Florence and, as a result, all Gucci backpacks should have a ‘Made in Italy’ label to prove authenticity. Be aware that this label will all be in lowercase, in the same font as the company title.
Another way to check whether your bag is authentic is to see if there are serial numbers on the leather patch inside the bag. Gucci uses 10-12 numbers in two rows, with no more than six numbers in each row.
The updated Gucci logo no longer features interlocking G’s, rather, these are now overlapping. If your product features interlocking G’s there’s a good chance it’s an older piece or not authentic. Along with this, the hardware used on Gucci backpacks is designed to last, therefore it will never be made out of plastic and you shouldn’t expect to see any peeling or denting on the metal.
Dust bags in dark brown, light brown or black will always be provided with authentic Gucci backpacks.
