Hey guys. I'm searching for some good pictures of the colour 'newsprint'. It is still not available in Germany so I want to order it from shopbop. But on some pictures it looks more like a dark green or olive and on other pics its more like a dark grey. How would you describe the colour?

Thanks!!

It's a gorgeous dark olive, with a bit of sheen. A lovely alternative to black, but goes very well with black clothing. Best of luck!

I agree with blackonmaroon.
When I first saw the newsprint for PTTM collection, I immediately thought it's a "grey" color. But the picture of a natasha bag (classic q) in newsprint on piperlime.com looks more olive-ish. But I think regardless it's a nice neuetral color :smile:.

Thank you so much! But I think that your Sasha looks like a nice dark grey, that's the colour I want (I missed the faded aluminium). But the pictures on shopbop look quite different?

diff leather/texture = diff color
the dye absorbs differently so you get a different result.
the colors are similar but they definitely have a diff appearance
I only have had the lamb's leather version, so I can only give you my opinion on that color and I do think the lamb leather Newsprint is more grey than olive
