Portland, Oregon-based Looptworks repurposes and upcycles fabrics and post-consumer materials that would otherwise be scraps to create bags and accessories. Further, these limited-edition, hand-numbered items are crafted in facilities that employ fair labor practices. The brand’s Weekender Duffel comes in two colorways—black or yellow—and features a kite sail fabric outer and nylon interior, making it lightweight but durable. With a divider inside to separate apparel and gear (as well as two pockets, one with a zip for valuables), the bag has a 37-liter capacity and abides by most airlines’ carry-on rules.
With a design reminiscent of the classic smiley face carryout bag, Baggu’s Thank You tote differs from the now-banned plastic version in that it can be used over and over again.

Perfect for lugging groceries, this bag can also be machine-washed.
With bold colors and retro stripes in a high-shine finish, Away’s limited-edition Chalet collection brings Alpine-inspiration to their dynamic suitcases.

Style and spaciousness aside, it also comes with a TSA-approved lock.

Our personal favorite, Gold Glitter, adds a pop of color to an otherwise all-black bag designed to carry a laptop, sneakers, bike lock, water bottle, and more over one shoulder.

Plus, an easy-access laptop sleeve (for up to 17 inch computers) offers assistance in moments when undoing the entire ensemble isn’t possible.
