Today I brought my Riveting Pochette back to the store for exchange, I've used extensively these 3 weeks and it has already patinaed. Why? The canvas edges near the front zipper were fraying! I got my exchange, and the SA who attended to me said I was the first person to report about that. It looks like that area is prone to fraying and since I've been tucking the pochette under my arm, I think my clothing might have loosened the frays! I still love the style though, guess I'll be more careful with it now.
