How we made it
The Caliana Crossbody is made using post and pre-consumer leather materials - the blue leather once flew the friendly skies as part of a leather seat cover on Alaska Airlines Planes. When the fleet retired the leather seat covers, they turned to Looptworks to ensure the useful materials wouldn’t go to waste.
The black excess leather was once on track to be fashioned into motorcycle jackets by Langliz Leathers, which means it’s as durable as it gets.
Inside, we utilized german-milled 100% merino wool felt to form our laptop sleeve and accessory pockets. We sourced this excess felt from FilzFelt.
Made from 100% upcycled leather repurposed from excess belt industry deadstock. Guaranteed Chromium-6 free, the Tiki Clutch Purse is a sophisticated and sustainable companion for all occasions. Whether you're headed to happy hour, a night out or the weekend music festival, the versatile clutch will keep your essentials organized.
Pebbled black leather and antique brass hardware combine for a timeless look, while quality components and stitching ensure it will last a lifetime of use.
Take flight with the In Flight LUV Weekender Duffel Bag, designed for your expeditions while honoring its origins. Each Weekender Duffel Bag is constructed by upcycling leather seat covers from Southwest Airlines seats, breathing a second life into the retired leather as it begins a new adventure with you.
Each bag conserves roughly 5,600 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.
