macOS Big Sur has updated default folder, file, drive icons, as well as introduced new guidelines for app icons: https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/macos/icons-and-images/app-icon/

The current icons on macOS should probably be updated for consistency.

I agree that the icons need a refresh, but: I'd also like to have icons in an editable from. 

The current icons were created by someone that donated the icons themselves and not their sources. This has made it impossible to update them (this redesign, but also for higher resolution) without completely recreating them.

I see, I'll add SVG files to the repo if I make any changes.

On another note, beginning with Big Sur, document icons can be system-generated: https://developer.apple.com/news/?id=5i6jlf4d
