We took reuse to the next level when we created the Inflight LUV Convertible Tote. Made from leather upcycled from retired Southwest Airlines seat covers, each of our In Flight Convertible Tote has its own visual personality acquired from the seat’s journey.
Each bag conserves roughly 3,000 gallons of water and there is a CO2 reduction of up to 82%. Additionally, we partnered with Relay Resources, a non-profit that employs adults with disabilities to dismantle and clean the seats. So not only do you have a bag with history, you can feel good about the purchase you've made too.

About Project LUV Seat
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!
