View Full Version : Azalea Love

I just saw this color, and I did a search, but no results. What's up? Is it discontinued? I think a shop bag would be lovely in Azalea. @Darcy Any leads for me?

Azalea was a 1000d Cordura color in certain bags (MCB, LCB and Swift) introduced in August 2011. Moriond will hopefully chime in with more info of other options if they existed. There were a variety of sizes of organizer pouches in Azalea to be had into 2014 since they're made from leftover scraps. I don't think shop bags were ever made in Cordura.

I was able to score an Azalea small DOP a couple of months ago - there might still be a few in stock.

Hi @Honey,

Azalea is a 1000d Cordura color that was introduced, together with Turquoise, in August 2011 (https://blog.tombihn.com/new-swift-cafe-bag-colors-azalea-turquoise). (Sorry, they used to have pictures of the colors in the 2011 blog posts, but they removed a lot of the earlier 2011 blog post pictures the week before they migrated to a new web site, and I can't reference what physically is no longer there.) Here's what the original 12 August 2011 blog post looks like from the Internet archive Wayback Machine (https://web.archive.org/web/20111204201846/http://www.tombihn.com:80/blog/node/1903)

The Azalea/Sapphire color combination in that post is not as spectacular as it appears in real life. This is the excerpted picture of the color combo from the blog:


Actual pictures from people who own the Cafe Bag in Azalea/Sapphire look more dramatic -- and seeing the colors in person look even better:

Here are some pictures from @dorayme's September 2011 forum thread

(These are much closer to the true colors of Azure and Sapphire)

Here's @Badger's post with pics of the Small Cafe Bag in Azalea (https://forums.tombihn.com/packing-lists-and-travel-tips/1762-small-cafe-bag.html#post32008)

I know that they sold Clear Organizer Wallets in Azalea as late as October 2015 (since someone on a forum asked me to ID the color, and I mentioned that the COW line had just refreshed two weeks ago, and that was one of the options). I saw a lot of Azalea pouch options when they first debuted the Double Organizer Pouches (https://blog.tombihn.com/tamincas-many-uses-double-organizer-pouch) in 2014, and throughout 2015.

This fabric was used for Cafe Bags, for 3D organizer cubes, organizer pouches, clear organizer wallets, and for the Swift and Little Swift. (Azeala and Turquoise are the only Cordura colors that were ever used for the Little Swift).

I also like @gochicken's posts of the Little Swift in Azalea (next to an Azalea bush)

You can also see one of her Azalea Swifts in this picture:

And here's one of @kkintea's pictures of an Azalea pouch beside a Grey Daylight Briefcase (posted in the Just for Registered Users forum, so the picture will only show up if you're logged into the forums)

Azalea is such a beautiful color. I have it only in a Medium Clear OP. I would love a pink colorway in 210 Ballistic, it would be a splendid lining color/color for small accessories!

And today I got my dream color! Thank you TB crew.
