    Carradice logo change?

    Two versions of logo. Wondering which is current:

    I have seen Pendle bags with some having a leather piece sewed on the bag with the Carradice logo on a plate over top the leather swatch. But some have a sewed on black patch with the logo embroidered in red on it.

    Are the leather ones still available, or ar the sew-ons the new thing now?
    Anyone know? I like the leather look better

    If I'm looking at the Carradice site correctly, the 'Super C' line has the embroidered patch while the 'Originals' line has the leather patch. Could be wrong, though...

    That is my take on it too. I use the green cotton duck version and all of mine have the leather patch on it, but they are all at least 3 years old or more.

    It's an eighty year old company. I'm sure they have had a number of design changes for their logos over the years.

    I emailed Carradice. They said:

    "The current ones have the leather patch with metal logo badge. The fabric patches are older models.

    Kind regards"
