Wow. They look very different in that case. The first photo seems like a dark cognac and the second a dark oxblood.

colour is between aubergine and black currant. before: inside with flash. after: outside in bright sunlight.

Apparently Vass is having trouble with the provider of the 3 pieces trees, my last order was ready for a month waiting for the trees until I asked them to finally send them with the regular ones. They told me they were very frustrated with this.

excellent.

actually, i've been there and my goods were delayed either. now, i think about, it looked like he ran out of wood, his raw material.

look at these pictures. the yard is empty respective only leftovers of old wood good for a campfire and a bbq.

my guess, when vass did the yearly planning together, they both obviously didn't factor in additional volume like special editions, shop opening, increasing sales etc.

blame it on the weatherman. things will work out again.

unfortunately not. they are a very rich cognac coloured scotchgrain, which is aging nicely. they are approximately ten years old and will probably need their first resole soon. thank you for your kind words.
