I know some folks really like the faded look, and I still really like this bag, but I couldn't help noticing a few days ago how much "lighter" the leather appeared with some whitish spots. When I looked behind the leather flaps, i could see a very sharp color difference from the original color to a new evenly faded color on both sides. It's in the Sky color. I have used this bag for a couple of months -- not every day, maybe 10 times per month. The rest of the time, it's put away in a closet. I don't live in a sunny part of the country either! Pacific Northwest. This bag has not been outside more than traveling to and from work. Has anyone else had a problem with the lighter Kooba leathers really fading?
