Hi, I'm new to the forum, and I've been learning about Kooba from all of you, so I thank you! I just bought a brown Meredith. I loooove the shape of the bag, but I prefer the type of smooth leather on the Charlie or the Nicole. What should I do? Since this is my first bag, I'm also not sure what the leather will do. Will it become more lustrous with wear? Right now it looks a little dull/dry. Thanks again!
