Color doesn’t match image

I ordered the orange backpack and the color is a burnt orange. The image shows a bright orange. Very disappointed. And no one answers my customer service emails.

Hi Eryn,
Thank you for your review.

We are a small company with a small team. This is one of the busiest times of the year for us, our team has been working hard to ship the orders so that they are delivered in time for school. We still try to respond to all the emails within 24-48 business hours, and we thank you for your patience.

We have responded to the email you sent with further details.

Thank you for your support, and we very much appreciate your feedback.

Feel Good & Look Good

I purchased the Semi Mini Backpack for my 3yr old son. He desperately wanted an orange backpack and the mini was sold out. It’s easy to see why because its a beautiful color! He is excited about it. I purchased the regular size pack in gray and a yellow pencil case. I am a teacher, and travel to 2 buildings daily. I like the simple design, heavy duty materials, and sustainability of this company’s products.
Thank you, Terra Thread, for sharing your talents and protecting our earth!
