We took upcycling to the next level when we created the Transit Tote.

This low-footprint leather bag premium airline upholstery leather from our airline partners. Each bag conserves roughly 3,000 gallons of water and uses 82% less carbon to produce compared to bags made with virgin leather. Handmade in Portland, OR by our Seam Team, we drew upon the trademark Southwest color palette to create a statement bag for forward-thinking jet setters.

In addition to keeping high-quality materials out of the landfill and in the loop, your purchase supports ethical business practices — to prepare the reclaimed materials for production, we partner with Relay Resources, a non-profit that employs adults with disabilities. Each bag is slightly unique and has been made with leather sourced from Delta and NetJets.

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!
