The current season has suede (actually cotton suede) lining but past seasons had Kooba print lining. I had the Sienna, Justine and Emma at one point (purchased from reputable department stores) and both had Kooba print lining. I currently have Shelby from the Fall 04 season and Lucy from the Fall 05 season. Shelby has Kooba print logo and Lucy has the suede.

Excuse me. Coach bags are high quality, and some are made in China. Anyways we had a customer come in whose Kooba bag fell apart in Bloomindales, she was carrying it in a Bloomingdales shopping bag. She bought like two bags.

iluvnordies, just about all the bags on ioffer are fakes (I would say 100% are fakes, but certainly all the bags that are going for sell than retail are fakes).

How well do these bags hold up to everyday use? I"m thinking about buying a sienna to tote around small notebooks/books when i'm travelling light around campus.

I love Kooba bags. Maybe their overpriced but still... cute. But I`ve noticed one strange thing, some of them have inside lining saying kooba all around and others that suede kind of lining. Both has metal tags and zips saying Kooba. So is it a newer version of kooba (those with suede lining) or are they just fake?
It would be great to know, cause the only place I can buy one is ebay. And I want a real one

You can buy one from the Kooba site, neiman marcus, saks, etc. Even bluefly occasionally. Kooba does supply their product at a discount (unlike other brands) so there are a few good seller on eBay. Post item numbers here.

I saw lots of Kooba bags whilst in NY this past weekend. I brought my black kooba sienna - my chloe tan paddington - and my bordeaux balenciaga first. Definitely go more use out of the kooba. Its the most practical bag certainly. I paid full price for mine in person at Neiman Marcus. Mine has the tan suede (alcantra really) lining and a leather pull as opposed to the metal pull. I called Kooba directly and they told me the lavendar interiors (we are talking sienna's here) as well as the tan interiors are authentic. Also so are both metal and leather inside zipper pulls

I didn't think the sienna style ever had the kooba writing in the lining? Maybe some of the very very first ones did? If I were your friend I would call or email kooba - they are very nice. Many many fake Kooba Siennas on ebay.
