We took upcycling to the next level when we created the Transit Tote. This low-footprint leather bag is 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 a trademark airline 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 Net Jets.

In order to conserve fuel, when our airline partners 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!

Learn how we repurposed airline seat covers and turned them into bags, and the design challenges we faced here.
