I bought the Baggu backpack listed in the other bag thread because I want something cute and chic for work that is also a backpack (i.e. better for my aching shoulders) and vegan. It seems impossible to find a backpack that is not the 'junior high student reflective zippered waterproof synthetic ugly fabric' style. The Baggu bag, while cute and I love the look (simple, monochrome) is a disaster because of the drawstring--it barely opens enough to get my laptop in and out, and it doesn't hold weight well.
So the search continues. I'm considering this, but it's expensive, and I'm reticent to spend more on something that may not work. I do love the look of it though: http://www.moopshop.com/product/the-backpack
Any ideas for other cute/chic/mod vegan backpacks?
