    Accent Colors

    I was thinking how nice it would be for a few additional accent colors for the standard bags. My example is the Steel Cafe bags: How nice would it be to have Orange and Yellow as interior color options?





    Looks sharp eh?

    I like both of those a lot! The orange a little bit more...
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

      Oh, that I definitely like. Both!

        I agree, they both look great! Knowing that Tom is working on a Burnt Orange color may mean we can get a Cafe Bag with an orange lining someday. I'd like to see Cocoa, and Burnt Orange too.

          I just noticed this... did you change the color of the TB plane to match?

            Not sure if you realize this up in Seattle but burnt orange is very popular in Texas because of the University of Texas. You could sell a bunch to student and alumni if you could make them aware of your product and the color option. I honestly think that's why burnt orange cars sell so well around here.

              I agree with MikeL on the cocoa/burnt orange combo. That's been on my mind for awhile. Something about it almost sounds appetizing. ;
              ha! you just read my signature.

                I did change the color of the TB... ok, to be fair--when using photoshop, the lazy way of changing selected color hue by default, changes all hues within the selected area. Guess I had some "patch contamination". I'll try and work up a burnt orange/cocoa version to compare.

                Thanks for all the surprises... maybe if we show enough momentum support here, who knows??

                  Cocoa / Burnt Orange

                  I just worked up a Cocoa/Burnt Orange pic... not sure how "burnt" the orange looks, but I have to admit that I dig this combination as well. Makes me hungry for Reece's Pieces for some odd reason.

                    Thanks for the moc up brantroz! That's what I'm looking for. That combo's a winner.

                      Please, please, please keep the plum/steel combo and I would like to see a Sapphire/steel combo for most of the bags.

                        Sapphire/Steel...

                        Thanks, I'm happy to mock these up. You just can't know how you feel about something until there is visualization to attach to. Here is what the Sapphire Steel looks like:



                        I really think all of these color combinations are winners. Let's see some additional variation to the lineup!!!

                          I'm all for paying extra $$ and waiting longer for custom color options.

                            I couldn't agree more... forget this "fast food culture" of order today, have it arrive yesterday. For niche, enduring products--I would argue the essential requirements are that it fits your direct needs and accommodates your daily activities. If that is the case, it is worth waiting for and worth making fully your own (via various options, etc.)

                              The Medium Cafe Bag is now available in these three new colors:
                              Plum/Olive
                              Pine/Wasabi
                              Black/Crimson

                              Sapphire/Steel may also be available soon.

                              At this point in time, making custom bags doesn't work for us. But keep suggesting new color combinations! Suggestions for new color combinations made up out of colors already in our palette are especially welcome.

                              Options for Cafe Bags are:

                              EXTERIOR:
                              Black
                              Steel
                              Crimson
                              Olive
                              Sapphire
                              Plum
                              Kelly
                              Navy
                              Cocoa

                              INTERIOR:
                              Steel
                              Wasabi
                              Sapphire
                              Crimson
                              Olive
