My husband knew how much I loved my damier that I had to return due to the bleeding lining. So, tonight he bought me another one, which amazingly doesn't transfer color hardly at all. I rubbed really, really hard with a soft white cloth and all I got was a very faint pink spot. I'm keeping this one. I think with regular use, it will be just fine. BTW, the date code on this one is June 06, made in France. I think these problems are hit and miss, unfortunately. Jadore, I'm so sorry about your situation. Maybe LV would let you test the speedys they have in stock, you could find a winner. The first one they brought out to my husband did have the bleeding problem. But he knew what to look for and asked them to bring another one. Gotta love him! The SA had not heard of the problem before today. Go figure! You would think LV would send a memo to the stores since it has been reported. Jeez. I will post pics a little later along with my new DAMIER KOALA AGENDA!!! I think I have created a monster in my husband. He picked himself up an agenda as well. Holy cow, I don't think the bank account is big enough for 2 lv addicts!
