What is this bag? What is this logo?
January 21, 2009 1:24 PM   Subscribe

The other day I spotted a very handsome shoulder bag of brown leather with a red stripe. I want to own one just like it. I wasn't able to ask the owner where he got it, but I was able to spot the manufacturer's logo. It looks like a heart, split down the middle into two lobes, and lying on its side. I've drawn a very crude version of it here. It looks faintly familiar to me -- does anyone recognize it? And in general, is there a good resource somewhere for looking up logos?

Could it be Roxy?

Hmm, the logo does have a little similarity to Roxy's, and to that of its brother brand Quiksilver, but it was definitely a men's leather satchel, the likes of which doesn't seem to be in either of their product lines, and the logo was no more ornate than the one I drew (much cleaner, in fact).

It might look familiar because of this. The Intel Centrino logo was the first thing I thought of when I saw your drawing.

Looks like the Vaja Cases logo, though I don't know if they make any big bags.

thought the same thing as box when I saw the logo, so I went to the webpage. Could it be something like this one ?

The colors can be customised, so you can make your own combination. Tried quickly with color 1 as "rosso" and color 2 as "friar brown" - and it's not bad....

Vaja is the one! Leave it to me to spot and covet a $600+ messenger bag.

And Intel is indeed the reason the logo looked familiar, since I had never heard of Vaja before now.

Thank you!

That messenger bag looks fantastic, but it seems to fit flush with the MacBook Pro in the pictures. Are they really selling a $400+ shoulder bag that won't hold the power adapter?
