Hi,
I recently purchase preloved alma bb epi (made in 2013) and have few questions regarding of quality. Do they use glue with fabric(or mesh) on the inside of leather loop where hardware attached to pieces on the bag? I'm not sure if it even makes sense..I'll attach photos. Also, inside of the handle I can see indentations on the leather on every stitching. Since I don't own alma, I checked my speedy in epi from 2011 but don't see anything.
I'd be very appreciated if anyone could help me. She is such a beautiful bag but not sure what the quality should be.
Thank you so much for your time!

They do use glue but I don’t see fabric. I’ve attached photos of one of my Alma BB’s. Did you get yours authenticated?

I’ll check my other two but I don’t think any have fabric

Edited to add, I don’t see fabric in any of mine.

Thank you so much for pictures. Such beautiful colour!! I bought it online and came with authentication card which they provide. It looks more like black mesh infused or glued to the inside of leather part or something. I thought I could trust them as they have offline stores as well but I'm not so convinced after seeing yours. How sad;(
