Hi Ladies

As some of you know I ordered an oxblood Tessie Satchel, well it arrived like this... Haven't really looked at the bag much, just put it back in the dustbag and emailed Mulberry. Now I've got to try and get back the nearly $300 that I paid to customs which is going to be like getting blood out of a stone. It really should have been packed in a smaller box and not thrown around so much by the carrier...

Oh dear, that is pretty poor form from the carrier company. I have to ask also though, as elvis has, is the bag damaged?

Have you got any more pics of the bag? Is it damaged in any way?
No sorry, I haven't taken anymore, can't really stand looking at it to be honest. The creasing as shown in the photo is permanent unfortunately, it's left a long mark in the leather.

Just to add, I haven't even opened the bag. I don't want to handle it too much as I need to make a claim to get my customs duties back, and it's best that I don't 'interfere' with the goods apparently...

I think the creasing would drop out with proper packing or are you just not in love with the style? The leather looks lovely on the one pic we can see ..

They're not the CIA. Have a look at the bag and return if you don't like it, not because the packing is damaged.

Oh Esmerelda! That's horrible. It's so hard for us to get hold of mulberry at a reasonable price here in Oz (if you can get it at all) and seeing things turn up like this after we've made the investment is so heartbreaking.

I'm sorry the packaging was so squashed. :sad:

But am I just really blind? Because I can't see anything wrong with the pic of the bag. It looks really nice IMO. :confused1:

Unfortunately our customs officials might as well be the CIA they're so bloomin' difficult to deal with.

I don't know if the crease in the leather (it's much worse than it looks in the photo) could be sorted out, but I don't really want to take the risk. Can't really love the bag after it arriving like that. She's definitely going back.

UPS are now investigating whose fault it was. I had to send photos of the box, the packaging and a photo to indicate how thick the cardboard is. It was either that or they were going to send someone round to inspect the box.

It's turned into such a blommin' drama!

Mulberry boxes are always flimsy mine often come like that but as the internal wrapping is ok the bag has always been fine...but if you aren't happy with the mark on the leather return it...hope it doesn't take too long for you to get refunded and get the customs etc back

When I order from m.com direct there is never an interior box and they charge me $20 shipping. Outlet in CA only charges $10, still no box. But I just got my willow sent from a full price M store and not only did I get free shipping but it came in a very sturdy M box inside the shipping carton. Why don't they double box them all?
