Alaska Airlines x Looptworks: The Carry-On Collection
Whether it's a new composting effort for coffee grounds, reducing carbon emissions and saving fuel, Alaska Airlines is known for their efforts in environmental sustainability. So when it came time to decommission the leather seat covers on their fleets, they parterned with Looptworks and we transformed the seat covers into bags and accessories that fly on as the Carry-On Collection.
THE STORY OF THE CARRY-ON COLLECTION
Alaska Airlines is consistently ranked in the top echelon of airlines committed to lessening their impact on the environment. From reducing flight emissions to improving the energy efficiency of its buildings to implementing innovative recycling programs, Alaska strives to keep our planet healthy. As it came time to replace the leather airline seat covers from sister carrier Horizon Air, they approached us to come up with a cool upcycling project to find these old seats a new home.
In order to give this beautiful material a second life, we knew we had to make products that would stand the test of time. Backed by our lifetime warranty, each piece in the Carry On Collection is made with top quality stitching and components, ensuring this will be your go-to travel item for years to come.
Our partnership with Alaska has continued to grow, and we now offer an expanded collection featuring the beautiful navy leather from the Alaska fleet as well as Horizon.
Since it’s upcycled, the Carry On Collection eliminates the need to make new leather, which saves an estimated 1,500 gallons of water per product!
