"Sold with 2 flaws from manufacturing"

I was very disappointed because didnt expect that this would be sold with 2 flaws from manufacturing, which shows that they dont have good quality control. This is quite expensive to received it like that. My partner has health issues so Ive not been able to return it. I never had this issue with Novica before and I have been shopping here for the last 15+ years. Other than that, the fabric and cut are nice. The material feels good to the touch. I have not used it because I plan on return it plus the flaw is quite evident.
