Southwest recently replaced its leather seat covers with a lighter material to save on fuel.
The airline contacted a Portland, Oregon company to ensure the material didn't go in a landfill.
Looptworks turned 40-acres of leather into limited edition bags.
They have the weekender duffel bag, the tote bag and the backpack.
The hand numbered products cost up to $250.
