Looptworks helps old Southwest seats take wing as stylish bags

It isn't quite making a silk purse out of a sow's ear -- but it's close. Portland, Ore.-based upcycler Looptworks has managed to turn some of the leather that used to cover the seats on Southwest Airlines aircraft into a range of luxe-looking, limited-edition, handmade accessories including duffle bags, totes, bapacks and toiletry kits.
