We're a new bag company based in Raleigh, making small batches of bags and accessories with a focus on design and craftsmanship.  Our collection is made with genuine repurposed aircraft leather from Delta Air Lines.

Here's where it all begins.  The process starts with a  seat back cover that's reached the end of it's useful life on board an aircraft.  This is where we come in.  We offer the leather a second life as a brand new product and save it from being discarded into a landfill.  

The first step is to transport the retired salvaged seat covers from it's origin in Delta's warehouse to our workshop in Raleigh.  Later, we clean the seat back covers, deconstruct them into pieces that can be reassembled and sewn into handsome handmade goods.

Loaded up with boxes containing hundreds of retired aircraft seat back covers.  Now we're ready to travel back to our workshop in Raleigh where we will process them.
