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 the headrest panel of a leather seat cover on Southwest Airlines Planes. When the SWA fleet changed over to a lighter material in order to conserve fuel, 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.

About the In Flight Collection

When Southwest Airlines wanted to replace its 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, companions for your next adventure.
