If you know anything about Dana and Melanie Harvey, then you know that they've been designing quality handbags for quite some time, made out of setbelts. Yeah, you heard me right, seatbelts. Back in '97, they were installing seatbelts into their 1950 Buick, and brainstormed into making a matching handbag for the little wife. Needless to say, the Harvey Handbags were born, as with this unique Seatbelt Executive Laptop Bag. Available in a variety of colors, this chic laptop bag is totally designed of woven seatbelts, with an adjustable should strap. It also features a zip wall pocket, slip pockets and velcro-secured divider to protect your laptop. Measuring 11.5x16x2, you can buy this bag, (and soooo many more!) at Endless.com for $198. Durable, versatile, and absolutely surely hot. Awesome...

I was made aware of aGaiN NYC via an email from Allison Teich, the company's creator/designer. "aGaiN NYC handbags and accessories are made from rescued and repurposed materials (JunK) and transformed into stylish accessories for modern life (FuNk)" Well how cool is that! And more importantly, how cool is this laptop bag ($165), made from vintage barkcloth and ultra suede? According to Allison, all the bags are made in Brooklyn and a portion of the proceeds are donated to environmental charities. So. Very. Awesome.
This retrolicious bag from Red Tango features a stylish vinyl exterior, contrasting white tubing, and the cutest cat graphic I've ever seen. The Weekend Bag works great for short trips or as a briefcase bag or laptop bag. It's got two inside pockets, cotton lining, and a double metal zipper with matching metal hardware. The $65 bag comes in green, blue and orange, and measures a rather roomy 11 x 16 inches with 9 inch straps.
Composition is now offering a handful of Ro bags for women including the attractive Voyage Bag in Pink leather.

With various interior pockets and a 16 x 12 x 5 inch build, the versatile Voyage bag could easily become the new home for your laptop or even be carried as a fun weekend bag if you wish. Composition also has the Voyage in Turquoise leather and sells either color for $285. Be sure to also check out Ro’s LuLu Laptop and Small MW Suitcase, which are both equally as intriguing as the Voyage and also available from Composition's online store.
Am I the only one passionately in love with Orla Kiely's bags? The Fluorescent Trim Canvas Portfolio is yet another case of a simple design that turns out looking pleasantly urban and sophisticated. While gray canvas keeps up the briefcase's conventional appearance, the bright orange trim instantly brings out its free-spirited personality. The interior of the bag features large pockets for documents and a laptop while the outside sports a large front pouch. I'm digging the two hand-held straps shown here but there is a longer, detachable strap included for those who prefer to carry it over the shoulder. The Fluorescent Trim Canvas Portfolio by Orla Kiely sells for $330.
Brought to us by the same folks who created The Tote, Acme Made has expanded their popular line of computer bags to include the new and stunning Slim Cargo. As part of the Slim collection, the Cargo uses imported textiles for quality and style as well as cell foam padding on all sides for the kind of protection consistently found in Acme Made goods. Some features that are unique to the Slim Cargo bag are the large exterior compartment that unzips to reveal an array of accessory pockets and the new "cashmere-finish" micro-suede that lines the functional pouch. The Slim Cargo is offered in many different fabrics and patterns including the lovely silver quatrefoil (shown) and is priced between $140 and $250 accordingly.
Casauri, whose bags have been featured in magazines such as Glamour and Good Housekeeping, was started by two sisters who made a laptop case for a class project in school. These days, Casauri accessories are being sold not only online but in stores spanning 22 states and worldwide as well. Of the four collections viewed, I found the Citra series to be the most appealing and the backpack laptop case to be the one that made my heart go pitter patter. The $120 Backpack measures 16 x 14 x 6 inches and houses 14 and 15 inch laptops with ease. The bag features a padded, orange interior and a water resistant light blue nylon shell. Casauri also offers other more standard-type laptop bags if thats what your into, as well as a nifty iPod case that rocks! As an end note, Casauri was evidently at Macworld Expo in San Francisco this year. (And my fiancé said there wouldn't be anything for me to do there! Huh!)
I haven't fallen this quickly for a laptop bag in a long time. Incase's new Fleur Tote (left in photo), from the company's limited edition 05 Collection, is bright and fun and so hip it makes me sick. Its crayon green exterior is a custom-made material similar to nylon and features a small, white insignia in the lower-right corner. The Fluer Tote has 12" straps, pockets for all your gear, and comes with a removable white laptop sleeve. Incase told me that the high-end bag retails for $200 and is only available at these specialty stores: Subject Matter in Costa Mesa, CA; Atmosphere in Los Angeles, CA; Goods in Seattle, WA; and Local.35 in Portland, OR. Also seen in the photo to the right are the Fleur iPod Pouch, Wallet, Laptop Sleeve, iPod Journal, and iPod Wallet. And if it's not easy for you to wear green, Incase's 2005 Crest line offers identical products, but in white with a very cool crest badge.
Among many other beautiful totes and laptop bags found on Talene Reilly's site, the very classy and fresh Reese bag is definitely my favorite. According to the company, this bag is for both "client presentations" as well as "sun salutations" with its versatile style and appeal. The bag features four interior pockets, an exterior pocket and measures 14.5 x 12 x 4.5 inches. Shown here in khaki and gold, Talene Reilly's $288 Reese (along with all her bags) come with a matching Carly laptop sleeve that normally sells for $88.

I'm slowly finding out that there simply aren't enough cute laptop bags out there. I refuse to get excited about any boring black one that looks like it should be carried by my dad, so I'm now resorting to showing you one that appears to be only available across the pond. This leather laptop bag from from designers Lin and Leo is absolutely fabulous. It has a padded pocket inside for your laptop, and zip and fastening and front pockets on the outside. It's available in turquoise with pink lining, raspberry with turquoise lining or brown with pink lining for £90. I'm not sure if you can have it shipped to the U.S. or not, but this thing is worth begging them to. [via The Bag Lady]timbuk2-marina-laptop-handbag
I'm really surprised (and glad) by all the ladies-only laptop bags I've found so far this year. This one, the TImbuk2 Marina Handbag, is spectacular. Made from ballistic nylon and available in a rainbow of colors, the $80 bag features a 360-degree padded compartment for your 15-inch PowerBook (or standard size Windows notebook), non-slip shoulder handles, and a waterproof padded bottom panel. It also offers an exterior zipper pocket with plush-lined cell phone pocket and pen holders, an interior secure zipper pocket, and key tether. It measures 15.5 x 12 x 4.5 inches and is available in green, red, orange, yellow, blue, and black.mobile-edge-komen-laptop-bag
This just might be the answer for all you computer-savvy women out there carrying around big, black laptop bags. I have personal experience with this ridiculous bag-carrying behavior as I own such a bag, but am proud to say I am now in the recovery phase of this horrible illness. Today I made my first step toward sanity and am buying this adorable computer tote from Mobile Edge. In pink suede, the bag fits laptops up to 15 x 11 x 2.5 inches and has the SafetyCell computer protection compartment so you can rest easy when toting it around. Another wonderful feature of this bag is that you can remove the entire computer section and carry it just like an everyday tote.
In case you didn't know, each time you purchase a pink bag (including this bag) from eBags, they donate 10 percent of the price to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. I can't think of a better way to spend my money today, can you?stm-diva-laptop-bag
STM's Diva laptop bag creates the perfect union between functionality and style. The black and camel leather bag comes with a strap that fits both over your shoulder and in your hand with detachable shoulder padding. The "Trieste" laptop suspension cell protects your priceless mobile maven while the separate document section keeps all your important papers in line. An additional bag is included for makeup and/or cables. The best thing about this $236 bag: It doesn't look like a laptop bag. The worst thing: It only fits 14.5-15 inch laptops. (My 12 inch PowerBook is trying to hang itself with its power cord as we speak.)knomo-laptop-bags
Knomo's computer luggage has been called "The Louis Vuitton of laptop carriers"--and I can't disagree. Each handmade leather bag is built from the finest materials to the highest specifications, and features the Knomo Tracker, a unique owner code that could help reunite you with your bag if it is ever misplaced or stolen. Each bag is also equipped with a double layer (20mm) of shock-resistant high-density foam yet still remain super stylish.
While I loved each Knomo bag available, I have to take the advice of a Purseuing reader and choose to highlight the Cholet. This spectacular laptop bag comes in three colors--Limo, James, and Bloody Mary (my fav, over there to right)--and features a removable quilted pouch, cable bag, phone and wallet pocket, documents pocket, and even pockets for a PDA or iPod. It fits most 14 and 15-inch notebooks and sells for £150 (about $285). [Thanks, Cushie]acme-made-tote
Besides the fact that this hand sewn bag is super adorable, The Tote is practically designed with the unique protection of an Acme Made bag. It has a fully padded computer pocket that fits most small and mid-sizes laptops and The Tote features a longer strap and compressible side gussets so that you can carry the bag comfortably over your shoulder. The wide base lets you stand the bag up for easy access. The $300 tote also has inside pockets for other gadgets and accessories.
