I walked to a doctor's office today in swirling blowing snow with my mini lin bucket. I know people have great concerns with the fabric, so I'd just like to say that although my hair, face, jacket, and boots were wet, the bag had only dampness which dried right away on its own as I kept walking inside the building. It still looks as flawless as it did a month ago, which is surprising because it's my throw-around bag; I don't try to treat it extra carefully because of the fabric. If you own it, you can see that it's not some super delicate thing. Mine still has yet to pill. I was going to post pictures to show you how it looks after a month of everyday wear, but it looks the same as it did the first day~ Hope that helps!
