Turning Excess Textiles Into Tote Bags
Looptworks, an innovative fashion brand, has crafted a stunning collection of high-fashion tote bags that are as eco-friendly as they are stylish. The company has leveraged its expertise in upcycling to create a range of bags that are made from airline seat leather from Southwest Airlines, excess motorcycle leather jacket material from Langlitz leather, and twice upcycled denim coffee bags from Nossa Familia. By using these materials that would otherwise end up in landfills, Looptworks is contributing to the reduction of waste and promoting sustainable fashion.
The bags are designed with a modern and functional approach, featuring spacious compartments and sturdy handles that make them ideal for everyday use. They come in various sizes and styles, ensuring that there is a bag for every occasion. What's even more impressive is that each bag is unique, with its own distinct texture and character. This is because the materials used are upcycled, meaning that no two bags are exactly the same. With their unique designs and eco-friendly materials, Looptworks' high-fashion tote bags are an excellent choice for those who are looking to make a fashion statement while also promoting sustainability.
A Step Toward a Bright Future
Our decision to shift away from crafting tote bags from excess textiles and towards downcycling, upcycling, and fiber-to-fiber recycling is a significant move toward promoting environmental sustainability. The new focus on creating sustainable solutions to help companies achieve their ESG goals is an innovative approach that addresses the growing concern around environmental degradation caused by textile waste. Our commitment to environmental sustainability is evident in our decision to transition away from creating tote bags.

The Southwest Airline Seat Project
The Southwest LUV tote. The leather used for this durable tote came from retired Southwest Airlines seats, which means it has already had a previous life. The leather has been used on Southwest planes and has traveled across the world, which suggests it has a history and unique character. By repurposing this leather, the tote bag is not only sustainable, but it also has a story to tell.
