3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli: What's that little loop for??

Just got a 3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli and inside, above the zipped pocket, is a little loop. It doesn't seem to have any purpose. Could it be a tiny D-ring for keys?

Also, when I received the bag, the back handle was coated with a chalky white substance. It came off with a damp paper towel and a bit of scrubbing, but I was a bit disappointed that a bag that costs nearly $700 came like that. Compared with the packaging from Coach, the packaging for the Pashli was beyond subpar. When buying a semi-luxury brand, I expect to be treated to something a bit special, not a flimsy brown cardboard box containing cheap bubble wrap surrounding a dust bag... And then to see that white film. (Wish I had taken a picture) Not a good first impression, to say the least. I get that it's not Louis Vuitton (which has wonderful packaging!), but a little attention to detail would go a long way.

But...The bag is super cute and I do love it.
