Ok. I keep running into Kooba's everywhere! I've been lusting after a black Meredith at Nordstrom's but today I saw a light gray and a light brown Meredith and BOTH were horribly discolored! The gray one was beautiful when I picked it up and then when I opened the flap, the whole top piece had discolored to the point of being purple. The inside was still a pale gray. Then the brown Meredith was discolored on the sides and on the bottom. We were wondering if the lights in the store could have caused this or is it a batch of bad leather? Nordstrom's has some displays lit from beneath which could have caused the light brown one to discolor on the bottom. The gray Meredith's entire front panel was a different color than the inside. It was a shame to see such beautiful bags ruined by what appeared to be lights? Has anyone else seen this with their bags? I offered to buy the Gray Meredith for $100 since it was damaged but they didn't take me up on my offer!!!
