'malo/mala' calidad

¡hola todo!

why do you say malo or mala calidad? shouldn't the adjective agree with the noun it describes, in this case calidad which is feminine?

For example :
(este borso es de malo calidad)

Shouldn´t we say : ( este bolso es de MALA calidad ) , Since mala is an adjective to calidad not to bolso ?

¡muchas gracias!

The adjective must agree with the gender and number of the noun indeed.

For your example:

· Este bolso es de mala calidad.
· Este bolso es malo.


Final note: Your greeting should be "Hola a todos"; right now, you're addressing a collectivity of people, otherwise, that would be the infinite whole universe.

La calidad es la mala.

El caso es malo.

Do you understand that?

Wonderful! We all make mistakes, but it's good to spot them.
