The lining of mine tore, so I ordered a new one, which arrived torn. A satin-finish fabric should be used as liner, tougher smoother and less likely to get caught and torn.
Love this eyeglass case. It's well made and the colorful one I have (pinks/reds) gets a lot of nice comments. I bought some for gifts too. The side zippered pocket is a useful addition. Thank you to Ruth and Nohemi. I've always admired Maya artisans for their traditional weaving and embroidering abilities. Actually in the 1990's I used to market crafts from UPAVIM when the project first began. I am so pleased to see the women continuing and receiving support for this beneficial and Fair Trade cooperative.
The quality and beauty were very much appreciated, but the whole reason I ordered them was a desire for a phone carrier. I was very disappointed that my phone would not fit in the case. I had purchased five for friends, and felt they were not the gift I had desired to give them. Dot Courtis
