Casual Everyday Bag for Work - Not Floral!

I'm looking for an everyday bag that I can use for work. Budget about £70.00. It has to be large enough to contain a standard A4 folder.

I thought about an Orla Kiely from the previous season on their website. Unfotunately, everything that I liked was sold out. I was also quite surprised by the feel of the fabric when I looked at them in John Lewis - they seemed rather thin and plasticky.

I bought my current bag from Boden about 4 years ago and it is on its last legs. The material is man-made, but is substantial. It is a dark blue colour with red spots and It looks smart if I go out after work. They no longer sell the same range of bags and there is nothing suitable on their site.

I like the feel of Cath Kidston bags but find the floral/spotted designs a bit twee.

So I guess that I am looking for a strong bag, with a geometric print, that doesn't look like a school bag if I go straight out after work. Any ideas?

there's a lot of Orla Kielys on amazon, have you had a look there as well as the website?

No you didn't! Thanks for all the really useful suggestions...I went to TK Maxx yesterday and saw several contenders for my new bag.
