When it came time to transform this excess into something useful, we were inspired by the durability of Langlitz' products. The goal of longevity came to inform every aspect of the design conversation. What color should Loopt Classics be? Black. Black never goes out of style. Function or aesthetics first? Function. If it doesn’t work perfectly, a person won’t keep using it. Clean or contemporary design? Clean. It can’t look dated in 20 years.
Langlitz' excess turned out to be the perfect material across all these categories and embodied a really cool story to boot. And, since the leather is upcycled, each one of these bags conserves between 200 and 6,260 gallons of water.
