Handbags are in Trademark Class 18. However...

Handbags fall under Nice Class 18 in the Nice Classification system. Class 18 covers a variety of goods primarily made of leather and imitations of leather, including:

  • Handbags
  • Wallets
  • Purses
  • Luggage
  • Trunks
  • Briefcases
  • Leather shoulder belts
  • Various other leather goods

This class also includes umbrellas, parasols, and walking sticks, as well as whips, harnesses, and saddlery. When filing for a trademark involving handbags, you would specify your goods under Class 18.

Examples of trademarks of Famous Handbag Brands

Here are the trademark registration numbers for three famous handbag makers:

  1. Prada's "Prada" word mark - U.S. Trademark Registration No. 1,882,100
  2. Louis Vuitton's "LV" monogram logo - U.S. Trademark Registration No. 297,594
  3. Chanel's "CC" monogram logo - U.S. Trademark Registration No. 1,314,511

You can see these trademarks in the USPTO Register.

These iconic luxury fashion brands have numerous trademarks protecting their names, logos, and designs on handbags and other leather goods. Registering trademarks is critical for famous handbag makers to prevent counterfeiting and protect the prestige associated with their brands.

For example, Prada has hundreds of active trademark registrations covering its name on various products like handbags, wallets, luggage, clothing and more. Trademarks enable Prada to take legal action against knockoffs and maintain exclusivity.

While the search results did not contain the specific registration numbers for Louis Vuitton and Chanel, those brands' famous logos like the LV and CC monograms are known to be protected by trademarks as well. Their trademark rights help these handbag makers preserve the reputation and value of their sought-after products.
