My experiences have been mixed. I have a bag similar to the one in my IRL that I've been carrying for about a month. Today the lining fell out. It was glued in. Will probably get some craft glue and try to reattach it. I have another Treesje that I haven't carried too much, but the color is wearing off the bottom and the edges. My bags get a workout, but I do try to be careful with them. What have been your experiences?
