My daughter receive an amazon gift voucher for her birthday & I bought this bag with part of the voucher. After using it a couple of times two of the fringes snapped off just above the metal beads. She absolutely loves the bag & it is just what she was looking for but I don't think the fringes are going to last very long. Real shame as its a great size & lovely looking bag but not very good if the fringes come off as that was the main attraction for her buying it. I wouldn't recommend it based on this fact. A bag is supposed to be used & if any more fringes come off it will lose its look.
