Lynx, my Kobo Glo Case has the white stitching and my Samsung Note Phone has the black. I prefer the black, also, but for the quality and price I'm really happy with the Kobo flip/easel case. The promoters really botched up by leaving the tab in front of the screen. It easily flips back and can be snapped if viewing easel style on a slippery surface.
Mine took under a week from Hong Kong to Florida, USA. I did require my signature so I had to fetch it from the PO. I'll be happy to buy from them again.
