    New colors: Kelly, French Blue, and Steel in the Cafe Bag

    Earlier this week, we introduced new colors of Cafe Bags for preorder…

    Small Cafe Bag: Steel Cordura/Olive, Steel Cordura/Navy, Kelly Cordura/Navy, and French Blue Cordura/Navy

    Medium Cafe Bag: Kelly Cordura/Navy, French Blue Cordura/Navy

    Large Cafe Bag: Kelly Cordura/Navy, French Blue Cordura/Navy

    We don't have finished bags in the new colors completed and ready to show you, but they're being made in our Seattle factory right now, and we thought we'd post a photo of them in process so you could get a preview of the new colors...

    Several weeks ago, I bought two SCBs -- Olive for casual use and Black for more "serious" occasions -- and thought I was done. Surely those 2 SCBs would cover the range of needs I have. But the Kelly and French Blue... Sigh. Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in.

    I decided I would wait a while before buying a MCB and now I'm glad I did. Going to wait on the finished product to be posted, but definitely looks like the Kelly Green bag will be the color I pick!

    I really like the French Blue - reminds me of turquoise.

    We have been asking for more bright colors and The Crew has listened!

    Perfect spring colors!

    If there are long strips of fabric remnants after those are made, wouldn't Key Straps in those colors look awesome too?
