Bags by Veja



When I first read about that Veja, the Brazilian fair trade manufacturer of chrome-free leather and organic cotton canvas sneakers, was going to introduce a bag line I got really excited but now that I took a look at the designs on their website... Aren't they a bit meh? Maybe even ugly? I have asked murse specialist Brad of Commerce with a Conscience for his opinion, which I hope he will voice later today in the comments. But what about you, my dear readers, yay or nay?

Als ich das erste Mal auf dem Grüne Mode Blog gelesen habe, dass Veja (der brasilianische Fair Trade Hersteller von chromfrei gegerbten Leder und Biobaumwoll-Canvas Turnschuhen) bald auch Taschen herstellen würde, war ich sehr auf das Ergebnis gespannt. Als ich die Taschen jetzt allerdings auf der Webseite angeschaut habe, ist die Aufregung verflogen... Irgendwie langweilig, oder? Und fast schon häßlich? Ich habe Brad von Commerce with a Conscience der ein absoluter Taschenspezialist ist, mal um seine Meinung gefragt, die er hoffentlich bald als Kommentar hinterlassen wird. Und ihr - wie findet ihr diese Taschen?

I feel the same way about Veja's bags, that I do about their shoes: I love how they're made, but don't really like how they look. It's a shame the brand can't step it up in the design department - it feels like a lot of wasted potential. Like their shoes, the bags are almost attractive, but there's something a little off. Great find nonetheless!

@Brad: thanks for giving me your honest opinion. I agree with you although I do like their grid trainers.

@Annette yeah, I like those too. Hopefully they're an indication of future models by the brand.

I really like their bags, I've bought one at Merci store in Paris a couple of months ago! Simply lovely and so practical to put my computer inside! If you do not like them certainty because of visual displays!!! Just check this coolest post in terms of pictures (it is in French, but whatever...) : http://www.dandies.fr/sacs-ecologiques-veja
