Hi everyone! I meant to post this a while ago, but I have been so busy lately that I forgot. I've had my black Downtown tote for months now (I purchased it this past summer). It is absolutely my favorite bag, and I use it all the time. I noticed that the interior (the cloth) has BLED onto things that I toss in the bag --- my iPod earphones get black and book pages as well (I carry a few books with me everyday). One time, I was traveling and tossed a David Yurman pouch with some jewelry in the bag, and when I got to my destination, the white DY pouch was blackened in many places. I have never carried my bag in the rain, or carried anything in there that would cause "moisture" (a water bottle for instance). I've never treated/conditioned the bag either. Has anyone else experienced this? Or, is it just me? Should I call YSL (or take it back to NM where I purchased it from)? If this is something typical, I can live with it, but I wanted to throw this out there and see if this is an issue for anyone else. Thanks!
