I got my Chestnut Carla and Ginger straight from Kooba yesterday - here were the pics, taken with a flash: I LOVE them both, but after trying both on and mulling things over all day yesterday, I decided that the straps on the Ginger and it's overall size made it my actual pick in the end. Carla is going back ... OK, so then I called Kooba and had them overnight me an additional Ginger b/c as others have suggested on here, it's nice to be able to pick from two. So ... here are the two Gingers, got the second one today. They again were taken with a flash b/c without it my camera is worthless, so the color may look brighter than it really is ... First glance you may not notice, but one is a deeper brown than the other and has a bit more contrast between the bag color and the braided detail. The other is a bit more of a medium brown and matches the braid color exactly. This proves that the dye process *can* vary just a bit. Lastly, here is a pic in which I did a color fix in Adobe Photoshop ... now keep in mind this darkened the natural photo quite a bit but it will show those who can't tell as much from the above pics what the degree of color difference is ... Which do you like better?
