    We took a new picture of the Archetype last night:

    Do you think that picture better represents how the cork material looks in person? I think it's a vast improvement over the previous picture.

    I wasn't before but now I'm curious as to what this cork is like in person. Also curious as to what this christmas pouch looks like. Could someone post a picture of it? Is it just a small organizer pouch?

    I just got a little gift. . . bring back other fabrics, too?

    Thanks, Darcy & Co. What a great thing to find when I got back from the holidays! I agree with the other posters that I wouldn't have thought cork fabric would look so neat "in person".

    Yup, that looks much better than the previous picture. But I've been meaning to raise another question about alternate fabrics for pouches and bags. The Imago Metrics review of the Imago posted in your Blog reminded me that there were three fabric options introduced for the Archetype: Cork Fabric, Brushed Stainless MajiliteŽ, and Snow Leopard UltrasuedeŽ. I liked the look of the Snow Leopard UltrasuedeŽ shown holding the MacBook in the Imago Metrics review, but I notice that only Cork Fabric has been available for some time. Any possibility of bringing back some of these other fabrics for your pouches?

    I don't have a picture, but it's a small organizer pouch with black fabric on the back, and cork fabric on the front.

    I also liked the Snow Leopard UltrasuedeŽ and the Brushed Stainless Majilite fabrics, but Cork was decidedly the most popular material that the Archetype was available in, so we decided to make the Archetype in Cork only. We do have a small quantity of both of those fabrics/materials left, and we're currently offering Super Ego strips in Snow Leopard UltrasuedeŽ, Galvanized Majilite, and Cork.

    I'll ask June (our awesome factory manager) how much we have left in those fabrics and if we could make pouches out of them. All three of those fabrics/materials are very expensive, and the pouches made out of those fabrics would likely cost a little bit more.

    In other pouch news: Organizer Pouches are now available in Kelly and Navy. The Kelly is an amazing color.....

    I too was surprised to receive my pouch and it truly did make my day!
    I have an Ipod living in threr now and it seems very happy.
    I also like the sticker but more significant was simply the idea that you guys do care.

    Thanks
    Ed

    oops!! Fixed

    P.S. What do you guys think of the Kelly? We can't get enough of it here. Especially the Kelly/Navy color combination that you'll soon see in the Imago and Buzz...

    And below is a picture that's kindof an experiment. Does it give you a better sense of how big the small Organizer Pouch really is?

    Personally, not really, as the writing on the dry erase board doesn't really make the measurements intuitive (and dry erase boards come in all sizes). I would have thought maybe side-by-side with a soda can... or, alternatively, with the stuff people would put in it.. cell phone, PDA, iPod, various flash drives, cables, make-up, etc?

    Oh, Darcy! I love the Kelly! & of course, I love it even more because that's my surname! I'm a proud woman of my Irish heritage!

    I definitely want one of these now...

    -A.

    PS I received my small cafe bag yesterday & I'm so happy with it! I don't know what I did without it! Now... I just think I'll have to get a medium or large size one for travel sometime soon, especially if that larger size will fit a flute case... *grin*

    PPS The cork is very cool as well! As a flute repair tech (who happened to be working with the REAL stuff today, it made me smile.
