ASOS have an option where you can tick 'non-leather' for bags and shoes, but it is tricky. You used to be able to at least guess where to start as non-leather was much cheaper, but that doesn't seem to be the case any more. I've had a few decent ones from TK Maxx, but it's quite a trawl as there isn't a specific section and a lot of stuff is unlabelled.
Top Shop did great faux leather satchels a couple of years ago, but that was winter season and I haven't seen them for a while - maybe ebay for those?
Good luck - do post pics if you find any (I'm looking for a brown slouchy non-leather large bag which seems pretty impossible too ).
It has room for purse, keys, sunglasses, deodorant, purse, tissues, pens, lip balm, and general detritus and the ipad too. What I love about it is if you look at the top of the bag there are two pockets. So I have everything other than the iPad in one pocket, and then the tech stays on its own. Plus I have a bad bag and bigger bags end up being filled with random heavy crap over a period of time. Even with everything in it this is really light and comfortable to carry. I'm pondering buying a second one in a more work-friendly colour.
Also I've slipped my Oyster card in the front pocket so I can blip through my bag. I feel like a Jedi when I get to the gate and it just opens...
It might be too casual looking for what you're after, but I love it.
That would be ideal for the original purpose geekywombat, thank you. The matt and Nat one I bought 'just because'.
I have a 10" tablet but I've no idea of that's the same size as an ipad air (and whether it would fit comfortably in the kipling bag). I'm definitely after something I can keep a bit more organised as I'm fed up of having to rummage around in my sack of a bag for everything.
