My worry about Jolicoeur is that the bottom corners of the bag will fray and tear easily... I only noticed that recently when I saw some ladies on the street with fairly new pieces but torn corners. I'm not sure if it's due to abuse?
^Thanks Jill! I cannot fathom why some of the ladies whom I've seen carrying the totes have such frayed/torn corners! I was quite appalled when I saw that for the first time. My guess is that the torn corners can only be attributed to abuse.
