The bags I bought this year are a different shade than the ones I bought last year. Why?

Fabric for our bags is produced in dye lots. All bags produced from the same dye lot will be exactly the same color, but bags from different dye lots (different years) sometimes appear slightly lighter or darker. Colors you see on the website are usually accurate, but contact us for a fabric swatch if the shade is really important.
