Louis Vuitton Artsy Bag Date Code

In this blog post, I’m going to show you where to find Louis Vuitton Artsy bag date code and what it looks like since I’ve received a lot of questions in regards to Louis Vuitton Artsy bag’s date code location. Indeed, finding Louis Vuitton Artsy bag date code can be a tricky task. It is discreetly”hiding” inside the bag and it could take a while to search for it if you don’t know where to look for. Some of you bought it from Louis Vuitton store but couldn’t find the date code; others found pre – owned ones but unsure about their authenticity.

We’ve talked about why a “Louis Vuitton Artsy Bag” for sale on eBay is fake in this blog post and the meaning of a Louis Vuitton handbag’s date code here.


Below is the picture of the date code (CR4161) of my Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Artsy Bag, which was bought from Louis Vuitton Pairs Champs Elysees.

A few notes of Louis Vuitton Artsy Bag Date Code:

  • Authentic Louis Vuitton Artsy bag’s date code is located on the fabric of the lining inside one of the wall pockets, not on a small leather tag.
  • The font of all Louis Vuitton Artsy bags’ date codes should be exactly the same as the one shown in above picture.
  • Artsy bag’s date code is imprinted on the lining ( the date code could be rubbed away with time), not painted in darker color.
  • Date code is not the only factor that determines the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton bag.

Some of you also asked what kind of outfits would go well with Louis Vuitton Damier Azur canvas & whether or not a LV damier Azur canvas bag will look good with darker colored clothes. Well, it depends on personal taste. In my opinion Damier Azur canvas goes well with a lot colors due to its neutral tone.  It certainly looks beautiful with light colored outfits and I’ve also mixed a black top and a pair of dark blue pants with Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Artsy bag. There’s no right or wrong with what you wear really. The important thing is: wear whatever makes you most comfortable for the occasion! :) .

  1. hi

    Can you tell me the size of the blocks in centimeters?
    Do you know Lily Regland? She sells “authentic” bags….

  2. Yvonne

    GM and MM Louis Vuitton Arsty bags have different measurements:).
    No, I don’t know her..

  3. Hey, I can not find my date code in my artsy MM anywhere. From all of the websites I have looked at, mine looks real but the only thing that doesn’t match up is the date code. I just can’t seem to find it. Can you help me please? thanks so much

    • Yvonne

      Hi! It’s imprinted discreetly on the lining inside one of the wall pockets, close to the seam. See the first picture on the blog? Your date code should be there!

  4. I bought a bag that has the canvans tag inside the zip pocketr

  5. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever

  6. Hi, do you know what the serial number stands for? I was told that the first & third digit stands for the month and the second and forth digit stand for the year it was manufactured which doesn’t make sence…my serial number is not exact but similar to your digits.

  7. maximum shred reviews

    You ought to be a part of a contest for one of the ƅest websites online.
    I will highly recommend this sitе!

  8. I’m wondering if it also comes the same date code fro the artsy in monogram canvas, if not what it should be? I also have the artsy in damier azur canvas it has the same serial number to yours.

  9. Hi Yvonne,

    I love the damier azur artsy and am thinking about purchasing one but am worried about several things:

    1. How the braided handle feels when carrying it on your shoulder… Is it painful?

    2. I take really good care of my bags, but with an azur print I am worried that it will easily get dirty. What is your experience with the azur print?

    3. Would you recommend the MM size or GM size? I am 5’8 and saw the MM on someone who was also that size and it looked a lot smaller than I thought it would be ….

  10. Yvonne

    Hi Cher,
    Welcome to my blog!:). To answer your question:
    1). Actually the braided side on the handle faces up (only the smooth side will touch your body) so it’s not painful at all.
    2). Don’t be a bag basher and you should be fine. But it’s light in color so it gets dirty easier than the darker colored canvas.
    3). MM should be good for you! My is MM and I’m 5’7. Unless you want super big bags? MM is very spacious and it won’t get too heavy.
    Hope this helps!

  11. Hi

    I’m looking at an artsy on eBay. The date stamp is CA4101. The listing says it was given as a gift a year and a half ago. Based on your blog I think the date stamp means it was made in the 41st week of 2001 – which seem quite a while ago? Or have I misinterpreted?

    Also, the handle is darker than the one shown in your image above. I was thinking that was natural wear?

    Grateful for your advice.

  12. Hi sorry – double checked and code shown in the picture reads ‘CH4101′

  13. Hi there…Love the LV’s! Azur, mono….all :) cCan you take a look at a bag on Poshmark and give me your opinion real vs fake? Let me know and I will provide the link and additional pictures as well. Thanks much!

  14. Hi I purchased a organizer insolate M66566 with tags. The date code seems accurate CA4182 based on your key. However I don’t know it they were produced in 2012. The monogram is perfect. I feel good about it but would like your opinion. Thank you for helping out people such as myself.

  15. Hi, please could you help me to clarify if my handbag is genuine? I have Arsty MM with TH1009 code inside. Thank you.
    Here some pics.

  16. Hi, I purchased a used Artsy mm and I am wondering if it is real. Louis Vuitton store could not verify it. Is there a place I can email you pictures? I don’t know how to attach them here.
