Â by AustoAuz Ink Bleeds
I purchased last seasons model, the Paris postcard, and I'm so disheartened by the quality. I've used the bag less than a dozen times and the friction between the bag rubbing against my clothes has led the ink to bleed. I am not sure how to avoid a purse from rubbing against your side, nor should I have to. I'm ashamed of the quality that Anthro put into this. Fortunately, I bought the bag at sale price which was roughly around $35. Unfortunately, I live in Australia now and have no way of returning the bag. Both sides have a print on it and one side can be "sacrificed" should you be willing to take the gamble. If anyone has an idea of how to fix the bleeding ink, I certainly would be interested in hearing.

I've been shopping for a new work tote and this one has fit the bill with a reasonable price. It hangs on my shoulder well without sliding off and seems very sturdy to hold all of my stuff. I've carried it a couple of times now to work and have had several compliments. It got rained on several times and I didn't have any problems with the pattern or straps.

What a charming bag! I adore everything about it. Lots of great details and little unexpected touches like the interior pockets and great lining fabric.
I can't find a way to comment on the other reviewer's complaint about fading ink. From the photos that were posted, I'm guessing her clothing (jeans) rubbed off on the bag, rather than the other way around. I own the Dear Parsy tote she referred to and had no problems with fading or smudging of the design.
