As some of you may know, we discovered that the some of the cork fabric we were about to use had some minor but unacceptable flaws. Fortunately we caught (most of) these problems before they left the factory. However, we have not yet resolved these quality issues with the manufacturer of the cork fabric. We hope that situation will change, but until it does, we will no longer be offering any bags in cork.
That means, as of today, the Swift in Cork, Little Swift in Cork, Clear Organizer Wallet in Cork, Kindle and Nook Pouches in Cork, Ego/Super Ego Stripes in Cork, and any other bags in Cork are no longer available for order and may never be made again. The one exception to this is the existing stock of the Imago in Forest/Cork/Steel -- they were made from an older batch of fabric that had no known flaws.
It’s with great sadness that we’ve come to this decision: we loved the Cork as much as you guys did. While these flaws were relatively minor, they made the fabric unacceptable to us and we figured you’d also prefer we not let any substandard bags get by. Maybe someday we’ll be able to offer cork again, but until then….
