Well, yes, Urban Outfitters does have some nice-looking bags but I think these indie designers are better (just my personal view after being camped on indie sites for the past 3-4 weeks , especially the jewelry designers) Recycled backpack? I'll keep an eye out for you as well ...

That first floral one is really cute!

And just a heads-up-the Paul & Joe Owl Bag that I had so hoped would be veg-friendly has wool AND leather.

Kim White Handbags makes bags from vintage automotive fabrics, and many are vegan. http://www.kimwhitehandbags.com/index.html

Having gone through all the links in this thread and many more, there's a lot of bags out there, but my main complaint is that most seem to lean towards being either cutsy, proclaiming veganism or some other message, or a tough harley look.

I'm a vegetarian who avoids leather as well. I had no idea about the effects of PVC until I read this thread. My Nine West wallet is made of PVC and that makes me sad.

As for handbags, I love Loop NYC and Parcel. they use fake leather for the strap. here's a link: http://www.loopnyc.com/ I have a travel and pleisure bag and I love it! very spacious and stylish. i want to get a bag from their patches line.

Joys of veganism and pleather! I know of a vegan guitar strap maker, buuuut I had to do some google work to find some decent purses. Most of the purses I found were hideous.

This was the best I saw via Peta2:

making synthetic bags is more harmful to the environment than killing animals until you factor in how harmful it is to the environment to raise those animals the way they do, and the fact that the chemicals used, and the amounts used, to tan the leather are worse for the environment than making pvc.
my personal issue with these vegan bags is that they run from homespun and kitchy to cheap and ugly looking. and as much as i admire what matt & nat is trying to do i could never carry around a knockoff. why can't someone make a line of vegan bags that is as chic and elegant as the leather bags? i wish i had the talent to do it myself. not everyone who cares about animals wants to look like a hippie.

Are any status/designer handbags really worth the price? That's a personal decision, I think. :p

That being said, it is nice that one can buy a Stella bag and know for a fact that it's designer and cruelty-free. (I've had success with Prada, Kate Spade and Vivienne Westwood but it's hit and miss.) I suppose that one could argue that manmade materials do not hold up as well as leather and may not be worth it from a financial v. ethical standpoint. As much as I have wanted to, I've never really loved any of her bags though. Shoes, yes.

Lately, I've been into the Harvey Seat-Belt bags. And I have to agree about the pervious statements here - just because I'm a vegan, that does not make me a hippie!

I bought a this bag from Charles & Keith. I don't think any of their bags are leather but they still look supple. High recommended!
