This Longchamp bag is made in France. These are photos of an original Longchamp bag. I am not claiming to be an expert. If you want to know if you bought a FAKE Longchamp bag, consult the boutique, capeesh? I DO NOT AUTHENTICATE. Let me reiterate that for your peace of mind, buy only from Longchamp boutique.
In my previous post, you learned about how to spot a fake Longchamp. To help you visualize the difference between a fake and the original one, I borrowed a fake tote bag.

Right now, Longchamp has been manufacturing some of their bags from China. So, if you bought one that is Made in China, it could still be real. Photos below can help you spot the difference so look closely.
