HELP! What is this Beco? could it be a fake?
 
I bought this Beco Butterfly I here on fsot a couple years ago when I knew nothing about BWing. Now I'd like to sell it, but there has been some concern from a possible buyer about it's authenticity.

It looks absolutely like the real deal to me, but she claims to have called Beco and they cannot verify the print? The tag # checks out, but the tag says Natalie and this isn't the Natalie print? Is it a retrofit or custom fabric?

Anyone know? Thanks for any help!

That is def NOT Natalie. It's purple straps with a flower print.

Strange. I thought Becos were made in the US? I have 4 Becos (3BB II's & a Gemini) & none say assembled in DR on them or have a tag like that. They also don't say the print name anywhere on them. I would post the pic on Beco's Facebook wall & see what they say.

Yep it almost looks like mine, which I always forget the name of... But it's still different.

And this, I never noticed a tag like that but was just about to look.

Ok, did a little research & the Butterfly 1 was produced in DR for a little while & contained the white tag. However, the info on the tag doesn't seem to match up with what is supposed to be on there.

From what I found, that print was called Natalie, and was released in 2008. I cannot speak to the authenticity of that particular carrier, but looks like the print name and print itself where actual Butterfly I designs. Found information here:

Thanks so much mamas! I can't see TBW threads as I'm not a member though. :( I'm convinced it's the real thing. . .
