Does anyone have a Balenciaga Cabas tote? I think they are wonderful & would love to hear from owners how they hold up

Thanks for the detailed review, and I love your pic. You look really cute with the bag.So I have had my Cabas for about 4 months now. I have used it somewhat regularly, but when I used it I really really use it! When I go to work I have to carry heels, lunch, laptop, wallet, phone, and my baggu sac of extra stuff. I also brought it to hawaii, and used it as my travel bag/beach bag.
This is a great bag & fits a ton, but I will say the canvas is getting worn already, particularly on the side that rubs on my clothes. It is not pilling, but the canvas is being worn down. I do not take it in the rain because of this.
The leather on the handles and of the bottom of the bag is AMAZING. So soft and really excellent
My only other call out is that it is hard for the bag to keep a consistent shape given that it is canvas! You cans see that in the 2nd picture. That should be obvious because it is canvas.
I got this on Department Feminine for around $600, and I think it is worth that! I would not pay 1k for this bag though.

Wow! I've never seen this material before. Is it wool or felt? It's lovely.Posting my felt cabas, which I use as a daily work bag. I'm also planning on using this on a trip planned this fall as it will hold all airplane essentials (scarf, book, laptop, toiletry case, etc) and still easy to carry. Love love love this bag. It's much more beautiful in person.
I'm not sure what the material is, to be honest. It is being referred to as "felt" in one Pinterest post https://www.pinterest.com/pin/471963235931330400/Wow! I've never seen this material before. Is it wool or felt? It's lovely.
I love this tote. I was pretty tempted by the leather version but it is expensive! I think one day I'll have to go for the canvas. Is the canvas hard to care for?
I had this exact same bag, but I sold it on eBay last year. I love the shape and the material, but I see too much rain and snow where I'm at to use itPosting my felt cabas, which I use as a daily work bag.
