A traditional satchel with a twist.
A new company shoved a press release at me the other day - the Original Satchel Store (www.originalsatchelstore.co.uk). If you fancy a tote that is honest and hardwearing, these might fit the bill - in proper leather, in a range of colours such as elderberry and burgundy. They're also made by disabled people, as the firm is a registered charity. Prices start at about £64.
