Hmmm, My artsy is only a few weeks old, and it doesn't have bumpy ripples like that, but the underside is really wrinkly! Seeing how smooth the underside of your handle is kind of surprised me!

Hi,
This is not my Artsy, it belongs to my cousin. To my knowledge she bought it from the store in May..I don't own one as of yet but I thought it looked funny so I asked if I could snap a pic so I can get more info.
Thx

I've had mine for over a year and a half and no bumpy bubbles...it does however have a little lines underneath the handles just like the speedy does! Have your cousin bring it back ASAP to have them evaluate...she might be able to exchange it!

***UPDATE*** just left LV with my cousin and they said its the way she hangs the bag to cause this ripple. They can replace the handle and rings for 195.00. Not a bad price at all!! So all Artsy owners be careful how and what you may hang your bag on.

$195 is a great price for a new handle, though! It's the only vachetta on the bag, so buying a cheaper used one and having the handle replaced could save folks a lot of money!

This is true! My coworker decided to go this route.
