I wish I could help you with your decision, but I am in the same boat that you are in. Love the mini lin but what about the durability, love damier, but what about bleding issues, so many choices, so many bags. Good luck!

I absolutely love my damier speedy. I think that it will still be just as gorgeous ten years from now. Very classy.

You know, my damier speedy does bleed when I rub it with a towel, but it does not get color on any of my things inside the purse. I've had this bag for several months and I haven't had any problems with anything getting red dye on it. I've actually forgotten all about it. So don't let that sway you, I think the dye sets a little better over time. I really don't think you'll have a problem.

1. made in USA = I try to avoid which limits my choices :sad:

2. Monogram Mini Lin = Have not seen IRL yet, but feel it would be no more worst for wear like it's "sister" version, Monogram Mini JMO :P

3. Damier = Hard choice luckily mine are all the older versions and had none of these new "bleeding" problems. :smile:


4. patina = happens with all vachetta some grow to appreciate the changes others dislike it. :shrugs:

:yes: Josephine PM TST :heart: it to pieces. The SAs would not sell it to me because I am the hardest person to please. Said it was to fragile... Well I must say it is still holding its own. Very durable and light rain just rolls off the scotch guard like water off a duck.

Plus I am planning to buy one of these Mono Mini Lin Saumur, Bolougne, the Petit Bucket. Haven't decided which yet.

i understand you! i am a hard person to please too and i hate it, i would hate going shopping with someone just like me lol but what is the material of your josephine? is it made out of the same textiles as the mini lin?

I don't remember exactly the materials that are woven into this fabric. Supposedly tightly woven canvas there's no linen it and does not feel like cotton as it feels too stiff. I forgot to mention my bag does not pill either.

Actually I think it's the same fabric as the classic Monogram and Damier without the shrunken texture coating. Not sure though. :shrugs:
