Southwest x Looptworks: In Flight Collection

Southwest Airlines In-Flight Collection
The Next Generation of the In-Flight collection is here! Each bag is hand-crafted in the USA from retired high-quality leather from airlines, including Southwest, Delta, and our other airline partners. Our Seam Team drew inspiration from the elements you loved in our classic collection and expanded them in striking fashion with version 2.0. Every Looptworks bag conserves resources, lowers your impact, and helps you travel your heart out. In order to conserve fuel, Southwest Airlines replaced their heavy leather airline seats with a lighter-weight material, and they wanted to ensure that the journey didn’t end for 80,000 leather seat covers. We upcycled the seat leather into the In-Flight Collection, conserving an estimated 2,000 gallons of water per pound of leather! Learn how we repurposed airline seat covers and turned them into bags, and the design challenges we faced
