Thanks for the reply I can't wait to receive this bag.Congrats on your new purse! It looks so happy that color. I would recommend spraying it with either Apple leather care or Wilsons leather protector. Just to be careful because it is a slightly light colored purse. I think if you head over to the deals and steals section there is a promotion going on right now for Apple Leather Care.
I'm not happy with the unevenness (is that a word?), but wasn't sure if that was a Kooba "thing". It seems that there are two different types of leather used on this bag. One part is super smooth and flat; the other side is kind of rough and not flat.That is "one" of the general complaints. My bag is fine but more than a few are not. I wouldn't use that bag until you treat it 3 times. It's got very soft leather. I would not be happy with uneven color but that is a personal thing with a bag owner and their bag.
