Hello everyone, I just wanted to formally introduce myself as I've been stalking these forums for the past few weeks. With your help I have just purchased my first Kooba...and first designer handbag....well designer anything. I actually had never even heard of Kooba until this August....I was on a flight headed to San Diego and noticed that the bag on the lap of the girl next to me was really nice. I kept catching little glimpses of it and noticed the Kooba emblem on the side. I'm kicking myself now for not asking her about the bag and can't really remember enough now to know which bag it was exactly. (Were any of you on that flight...I think it was Aug 2nd...she was traveling with a guy...sat in the middle seat...anyone??) But from that moment forward I was obsessed. As soon as I got home from my trip I started researching. Thanks to Lexi and Youngster and Minimouse(?) among many others I decided on a Jessie....I was really looking for a Java but my second choice was Khaki so when it came back up on the Kooba site (check it out....there are still some there!!!) I had to grab it. It arrived today and I love it! I wasn't certain about the color and was afraid that anything but the Java would dissapoint me but it really is a beautiful bag. You are all right, they look so much better in real life than in any of the photos! So thanks everyone!!! I'm hoping that now that I have a Kooba this obsession will end but from the looks of you all.....I'm in big trouble as it looks like it may just be beginning!!!!
