Hello everybody! I have a question regarding the construction of Paddington bags. I bought a Chloé Large Paddington Capsule Tote in Tan from net-a-porter and received it on January 14. Not even two weeks after I started using the bag, I noticed that the 'paint' which finishes the edges of the handles have started to chip, peel and flake away exposing some of the thread binding the two pieces of leather that make up the handles themselves. I expect wear and tear on handles of bags but this is ridiculous. I have contacted net-a-porter and they told me to send the product back to them. I have a feeling that this type of sending things back will drag out. There is a Chloé boutique in my city so I'm tempted to take it there to have them look at it but reading previous posts on this forum, I'm wary about the type of help I will get from them. I love the bag and don't really want to part for it for an indeterminable amount of time (if I send it back) but I also can't accept or use it for that matter in the condition it's currently in. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! And if anybody else has also had similar problems with their bag handles, I would really love to hear what you did about it! Danke schön!
