Made from leather upcycled from Southwest Airlines seat covers, each In Flight Weekender Duffle bag has its own visual personality acquired from the seat’s journey. Our design team has been getting creative with our remaining leather supplies so that none of that beautiful blue and tan leather gets sent to the landfill. That craftiness has resulted in a new twist on an old favorite, a blue version of The Weekender Duffle Bag, one of our most popular In Flight items.
Once recycled, then upcycled. The leather from the In Flight Collection was sourced when Southwest Airlines replaced heavy leather seat covers with a lighter weight material in order to conserve fuel. They wanted to ensure that the 40 acres of iconic blue and tan leather went to good use.
We partnered with a non-profit that employs adults with disabilities to dismantle and clean the seats.
Looptworks upcycled this material into the In Flight Collection, the perfect companions for your next adventure.
