SO sad, i purchased this bag less than a year ago from a Nordstrom, but it was on sale, it was only like $500, but original retail like $1300. What do you think Nordies can do for me? Its not like i can switch it for anything since MJ purses dont go for that much normally :'(
HEEELP!
I'm so embarrassed to be carrying a ripped purse :sad:

Sorry to hear that. Which MJ bag is it? So far I've only heard of MbMJ Hiller hobo in blue & violet having the leather peeling problem.

I'm w/ you guys... so curious about what bag this is. Also, is it ripped or is it peeling or peeling after it was ripped? Couldn't figure it out :P

yes, im curious which bag as well. most of the bags are great quality. i really think the current hillier problems have to do with the chemicals used to get the colors and how they adhere to the leather. i haven't heard much other issues wih his other bags besides the carter line...

so the bag is the bal harbour satchel
it's peeling from the side


see how it has a darker ribbing on the side, like the part where it gives the bag structure? well that part is peeling so instead of the leather I can only see the black plastic under it, I haven't had the chance of taking pictures to send it to MJ repairs since I don't have my camera but I will ASAP!
I hope it can be repaired! I absolutely love my purse!! :crybaby:

^ That is the Resort 2006 Bal Harbour Satchel. Unfortunately, MJ repairs only overs bags produced in the last 24 months so Diego may not be able to help you. In that case, your best bet would be to see what service Nordstrom can offer you.

Just to be clear, is this happening to the piping at the bottom of the bag or the rim around the top? If you could post pictures of the peeling it would really help.

sounds like the piping, i agree. you must have bumped it on something, or it lifted on the area where the piping is joined it sounds like...

^ That's exactly what I was thinking. I could be wrong, but it sounds like more of a wear & tear issue than a quality one.

ITA with June and Melly. Leather piping can be delicate by nature. If there is too much wear or the edge gets rubbed on something abrasive or sharp it can leave the interior exposed. Sorry this happened. Nordies has great CS. They will probably fix it for you :tup:.
