They say it's about the journey, not the destination, and our journey with the iconic Southwest Airlines tan & blue leather is changing direction.
Thus marks a bittersweet moment - where we say goodbye to the final few pieces of the collection we know and love and celebrate the good we've done over the years. Pick up one of our final totes and get your piece of history or scroll down to learn more about our upcycling journey with Southwest Airlines.
After remodeling their fleet of Boeing aircrafts, Southwest Airlines had a mountain of premium leather - 43 acres to be exact - that initially was headed to landfills. After connecting with us as part of the Repurpose with Purpose program and some innovative design work by the Looptworks Seam Team, the In Flight Collection was born. Full of durably-made, limited edition travel essentials, this collection has not only been one of our most popular, but it was a key step in Looptworks' evolution as a closed loop business.
The best part? Every single collection item contributed to the health of our planet and the people on it. Through upcycling, we were able to dock some notable milestones in our impact journey.
