Hi fellow PF!

As I've shared earlier this week, I got a new Chanel quilted black patent woc. However, since day 1, I've noticed that there's a small indent on one of the little squares.. Upon closer look, it was caused by the zipper of the flap... Is this normal? I tried looking everywhere online, but there's no mention of it anywhere else~~

Any comments would help! Thanks!

It is unfortunately normal. My patent and lamb wocs have a dent from the zipper... SIGH but its okay, no one can see it when its closed.
Thanks for replying ^^ I figured it'd happened sooner or later, but I just wanted someone to confirm it for me. Thanks a bunch =)

Yes it is normal, if you're not using it, i'd suggest wrapping the zipper with some paper to prevent it from further denting the bag.

When i first unpacked my woc there was a big tissue panel covering the whole side where the zipper is. Now i know they do it to prevent the dent but it wouldn't worry me as it will happen sooner or later!

Agreed - tis just one of those things - and you cannot see it when closed.
Enjoy the lovely WOC !!

Take a blow dryer to it on medium heat, it may soften that part a bit and allow it to "puff out." Make sure you monitor it though so it doesn't overheat or burn
