Skyebags

Inspired By Flight. Crafted By Hand.

Skyebags is an American leather bag manufacturer.  Skyebags is for all those who are drawn to the adventure of flight and travel.  Our small collection is constructed from recycled aircraft leather donated by Delta Air Lines.   We are dedicated to creating classic simplicity, thorough craftsmanship and a consistent hand-made quality.  Our line is designed in Raleigh, North Carolina and made with care in the USA.

We emphasize sustainable, low-impact practices throughout our operation, from our repurposed materials to our recycled packaging.  The process begins with collecting genuine reclaimed aircraft seatback covers in Atlanta, Georgia.  We transport the reclaimed leather to Raleigh where they are graded and processed.  In our workshop, we use hand tools and a 1973 industrial Singer sewing machine to cut and sew the leather into bags.   Each bag is unique and varies slightly in appearance because of what they were and of what they have become. 

Ten percent of profit from each sale is donated to the nonprofit organization selected by Delta Air Lines. All of our donations have benefited The Nature Conservancy since 2010. Our collection speaks of ecological awareness and the beauty of refined style.
