Repurposing The Unusual
Wondering what makes our collection stand out? They’ve repurposed surprising materials from aluminum headrests to leather from A380 onboard lounges, seatbelts, and even fur from the Captain’s seat. It’s not just luggage; it’s a piece of aviation history.
Behind The Scenes: Crafting Excellence
Emirates’ team of 14 talented tailors, officially known as Engineering Maintenance Assistants, are the creative minds behind the scenes. They fix and stitch tears in the interiors of our vast aircraft fleet, with four dedicated full-time to the upcycling initiative. These artisans collaborate with suppliers to transform materials into unique, eco-friendly masterpieces.
Sky’s The Limit
From 16 retrofitted aircraft, Emirates has already recovered more than 14,000kg of materials, with potential to salvage up to 270kg of leather and 627kg of seat fabric per retrofitted aircraft. The fabrics, including high-quality pure leather from First Class Seats and 95% wool seat fabrics, undergo a meticulous cleaning process before being transformed into your next travel companion.
