When I lived in Tunis, Tunisia, I became friends with a few of the vendors in the open market and found out that almost all of the products sold in the market were shipped in from China. A group of the vendors would go in together on one container.
It would seem many of the products made in China are high-quality and some are low-quality. How to know the difference? I guess my point is that I wouldn't write off Mulholland just yet without first comparing an American-produced bag with a Chinese-produced bag.
