Question High-quality cloth briefcases with no leather parts

Are there

I'm looking for a high-quality and good-looking cloth briefcase, similar to what Filson and Property Of make, and while there are plenty available, virtually all of them feature leather trim. I tried checking vegan brands, and found out they offer almost no briefcases, and what they do offer does not look good at all.

Filson 257 (check it ar http://www.filson.com/briefcase-computer-bag.html) is what I consider a perfect briefcase. Do you know any non-leather analogue to it?

Some of the military style canvas messenger bags/briefcases are completely canvas, with no leather trim, but perhaps the style is more rugged than what you are wanting?

Example: http://www.amazon.com/Rapiddominance...+messenger+bag

Messenger bag and canvas briefcase are too quite different styles.

There are some nice canvas briefcases on Amazon, like this one: http://www.amazon.com/National-Geogr...nvas+briefcase but none seem to be as good as Filson's.

From what I understand it is widely accepted in the society that high-end luggage even when made of canvas must feature authentic leather trim and no manufacture dares to break this rule. My hope was to find one that does.

@tokyobags --I came here to link your site!
Very nice bags!
We only dislike when folks only join to sell things, but you've become a very valued contributor!
Actually it's okay to have one-time posts if the site fits our specs as being veg'n and ethical.

Thanks nowheyjose, LedBoosts, and silva! I appreciate you guys for checking out our little family store. Sorry for checking back late, I was on a long hour flight with my family on a little new year vacation. We strive to be together during the new year, for us it is an auspicious way to start the year

For our family store, we decided to create these bags due to our passions and involvement in various areas. Back then in college, I majored in Architecture design while my wife was in fashion and bags crafts design. After our studies, we have been involved my jobs which actively promotes environmental friendly awareness. I was designing sustainable buildings for an architecture company for a few years, and we are currently looking to make environmental friendly architecture more wide spread and available to the general public. It is our common goal want to do our part in sharing the way of living in harmony and respect with our environment.

Sorry for digressing, anyway, with us being a vegan for many years, we decided to put together all our passion of design, bag craft and our vegan lifestyle in hoping to help people around us to understand the lifestyle, health and psychological benefits of being vegan. This was our goal of creating our family vegan bag store.

We believe when people are willing to try vegan products, they will gradually realised that there was in fact no need to animal-based products in the first place. Other organic, natural and semi-synthetic products are able to serve their needs just as well, while being friendly to both animals and environment.

Creating and sourcing the right materials that are animal-free and environmentally friendly takes much more work and time for us to create a bag. But we believe that it is the right thing to do, than to go the easy way out.

Thanks again for the positive support and kind words. If anyone is looking to get a bag from us, we will really be thankful. We have a coupon which we gives to returning customer, which we attached a note and thank them for taking a step in using vegan products. You may also use it when checking out. The coupon is GOVEGAN, it will be a 10 percent storewide discount.

Feel free to contact me for anything vegan, architecture or bags craft related. I would love to discuss my passions. I believe that sharing allows both myself and people around to learn and discover new insights.

Thank you!
