    PLEASE make bags in Navy/Turquoise!! I'll take any bag in those colors - I'm sure I'll find a use for it I got my fabric swatch today in the mail, and WOW, but I think I prefer it as a liner color.

      Swatches are 1000d Cordura, which are used as an exterior fabric only.

      Cafe bags are lined with the lighter weight 500d Cordura, which are in colors Steel, Wasabi, Cayenne, Olive, and Sapphire.

      Azalea will be lined with Sapphire, and Turquoise will be lined with Cayenne.

      Ms Moon, if you love Navy ask about a Navy exterior Cafe Bag.
      Or a Navy/Turquoise Swift or Little Swift.

        Oops, I think I actually knew that. Ok, well I do love the Turquoise, but I want nothing to do with the oranges or reds. That's why I've never bought a cafe bag in Navy. Maybe I can do the LCB in Turquoise/Wasabi. Although now that I look again, the LCB is also available in Navy/Wasabi. What I really want is a SCB in Navy, Turquoise, or Steel without the orange!

          I am in the same boat, I don't want Cayenne lining.

          I think it would be great for cool color loving people to have a Sapphire lining in Navy, Steel and Turquoise Cafe Bags, a Steel lining would be ok too.
          What do you think?

          I have to add that the late Yves Saint Laurent would have probably called us "provincial", or something, because some of his collections had beautiful mixes of cool and warm colors.


          Edited to say that the pre-order link show that the Large Cafe Bag will be Turquoise/Wasabi.

          And there is still Punch/Steel Large Cafe Bags available.

          I have a Punch/Steel Large Cafe Bag, Punch is a beautiful strawberry color, check it out, you might want to get one.

            Ha, I actually HAVE a Punch/Steel LCB!! I do like it, but I'm considering selling it on eBay to get one in turquoise, which is one of my very favorite colors ever!

            I agree with your lining colors - Sapphire, Steel, or Wasabi are the only colors I will consider for a bag (at least the ones with a Cordura lining). I also initially read your comment as "cool, color-loving people"!

              Oh, and I just fell in love with the Turquoise/Sapphire combination. Here's hoping for that one!

                    Any chance this will ever be a possibility, or should I go ahead and order the Turquoise/Wasabi now before Turquoise leaves us? Any estimation on these colors in the Small Cafe Bag?

                      How gorgeous would a Turquoise/Cork/Wasabi or Sapphire Imago be??

                      Ok, I'll quit dreaming for now.

                          Laughing. Maybe it's kind of like the phrase that "real men don't eat quiche."

                              Annnd I'm still waiting. I'm getting really peeved at the Post Office for not bringing them. I can't even obsessively reload the tracking page.

                                I honestly don't know. It's not a color combination we plan to make in the near future (we're pairing Turquoise with Cayenne or Wasabi for now) but who knows what we'll decide in the distant future! Will we still have Turquoise then? Maybe. Will we still have Sapphire 500d? Maybe not...
                                Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)
