Plane Industries Luxury Luggage

About a year ago, Portland International Airport announced that they would be tearing up the carpet from their terminal floors. As soon as word got out, people began to speak up. They didn’t want to see the carpet go. As odd as it sounds, flight after flight, year after year, that carpet had become a travel partner to so many. Plane Industries, a company based out of London, has found a way to capture that same love for the retro aesthetics of travel and put it into their new line of luggage.

Every year about 350 planes are scrapped and roughly 100,000 seats are decommissioned. This small company run by two brothers, Ben and Matt, aims to make use of the fabric these airliners would otherwise do away with by turning them into high-end bags. Each piece of fabric they received is deeply cleaned, and then sewn into either a backpack, laptop sleeve, weekender, messenger, or phone sleeve along with Italian tanned leather and solid American Made bras fittings. Every piece they turn out of their shop includes a laptop compartment, is monogramed with your initials, and comes with a leather stamp that tells the story of the fabric – how many miles it flew, how high it went, and how fast it got to go. Just like the the lovers of the Portland carpet learned, sometimes the end is just another beginning. Prices for this line start at $50 and go as high as $360. [Purchase]
