The designs are produced from old plane cabin seats after 80,000 of Southwest’s seats were replaced last year to make way for lighter, more comfortable models.

The bags, which include a tote, backpack and weekender holdall duffle design, are made from water resistent leather and have a two-tone purple and beige look, in keeping with the original seating colours.

“We rescue high-quality, unused material and turn it into limited edition, hand-numbered goods.”

Prices range from $150-$250, with a whopping big waiting list of up to 7 weeks for some items!
