i my paris biarritz tote and i've been using it every day as a school bag. i've probably had the tote for less than two months now and the stitches at the bottom of the bag are coming apart. some of the stitches are loose and some of them have ripped. i don't think i've been abusing the bag. i'm usually really careful with all of my belongings. at first, i wasn't thought worried about it and i just chalked it up to normal wear and tear...but it keeps happening. has this been happening to anyone else? i bought the bag at the fashion island Neiman Marcus. should i take the bag there for repair? does Neiman Marcus do repairs on chanel bags? or do i need to take it to the chanel boutique? do you think i will be charged for repairs? approximately how much would it cost to have the stitches redone? thanks in advance for your help!
