A Line of JetBlue Bags Makes the Most of Old Crew Uniform Material

Made my Manhattan Portage, these JetBlue bags are stitched together with a sensitivity towards the planet. While the air travel industry is not generally known for any significant eco-friendly practices, this collaboration between an airline and a messenger bag manufacturer has resulted in some rather resourcefully produced voyaging accessories.

When JetBlue redesigned its crew's uniforms, they hoped to repurpose the fabric for good use, rather than simply discarding the outdated ensembles. Their solution was to have Manhattan Portage turn them into highly practical travel cases, from toiletry bags and clutches to carry-on duffels and computer bags. The reflective fluorescent vests and the royal blue clothing scraps alike form ideal vessels for the stashing the possessions of airplane passengers. After all, who knows more about being organized for travel than an airline?
