Old Aircraft Seats Upcycled Into Luxury Luggage
A high-end accessories collection is made up entirely of discarded airplane materials
Although there is a lot more participation in recycling clothing and other materials, little is happening around recycling any airplane parts. Two brothers, Ben and Harry Tucker, decided to bring the trend in vogue with their new brand Plane, a luxury luggage collection that is comprised of fabric from old aircrafts.
This type of discarded fabric is a great fit for luggage because it is resistant against heat and stains while being relatively light. It also goes through intense deep cleaning and tests for durability. In addition, each piece of luggage will be engrained with one’s initials and the average statistics of all the old airplanes’ journeys: 18 million miles, 68 countries, 36,000 feet in the air and 575 mph.
