Purchased a Damier speedy 25 today. I read on a thread that they are made in France and that they'll soon start making them in the U.S. And also that the prices were going up. I can't seem to find that thread. Anyways, mine is made in the U.S.A. SUCKS. I really wanted to avoid purchasing one that was made in the U.S. because it just doesn't seem authentic to me. Also, the brass hardware is so cheap. They should've made it with the same hardware as the papillion. And the leather material. It seem so much thinner/flimsier than the mono speedy. All the other Damier speedy owners, do you feel the same? I do love the bag, it is gorgeous. I just think it was cheaply made.
