All travel bugs can sure relate to the thrill of hearing the airplane zoom skywards or the sight of one making your wanderlust ooze out. And soon enough will be able to carry a piece of these airplanes with you. Sounds Bizarre? But you heard us right! British brothers, Ben and Harry Tucker are the brains behind- “Plane”, a brand which offers a luxury bag collection curated out of cast-off fabrics used in aircrafts.
Whoever said luxury comes through fine, first hand and specially crafted materials is sure to be proven wrong now. The creative duo invented this concept with the notion of providing luxury through innovation. The brand hoards discarded fabrics from airplanes from world over in bales which are then handpicked from the lot by specialists to create the chic finished products. The collection includes a range of bags like weekenders, messengers, rucksacks and also laptop, tablet and phone accessories. Each of these rescued fabrics have had an approx. sky time of 18 million miles, visiting 62 countries at 575 miles per hour at 35,000 feet in the air and these magic numbers will come emblazoned on each of the bags.
Quirk is not the only element that is taken care of here as aspects of durability and quality are also perfectly met. The fabric used in aircrafts being flameproof, lightweight, robust and stain resistant makes it ideal for being churned into this distinctively unique collection. While the laptop and phone covers are available at $ 45 and $ 30 respectively in an early bird offer, the messenger bag, rucksack and the weekender are prized at $220, $230 and $ 250 respectively at early bird rates. It is wise to opt for the collection at early bird prizes or at Kickstarter to save up on added retails prices. Overall the collection spells class and is sustainable luxury redefined!
