OMG, I thought the quality would be great considering the price tag!!! This is my first and only Gucci, and with this fraying.. I think it'll be my only Gucci canvas. I got my pink pouch in February at the Gucci store in the Hong Kong airport, and considering that I'm very careful with it I'm not sure what caused it to fray... It's fraying at the top part, on the front of the bag; where the zippered pocket connects to the pouch. (I'll post pictures later since I'm at work) I had to cut some of the fraying off before since it was getting too long. It seems like the fabric is slowly coming off... Has anyone else had this problem?
