The Skyway Luggage Company Announces the Launch of Rainer their First EcoTravel Collection of Soft Bags
Manufactured From Recycled Water Bottles in 5 Adventure-Ready Unisex Styles
KENT, WASHINGTON (PRWEB) JULY 12, 2022
The Skyway Luggage Company, the Washington-based global luggage, and travel accessories leader, announced today the launch of their new Rainer collection of lifestyle bags for men and women. Eco-style meets versatility with this new group of casual backpacks and travel bags designed to meet the needs of digital nomads exploring the world.
Each style in the Skyway Rainer collection is made from recycled PET plastics. A first for the brand in soft bags, and a new step in the company’s forward- looking commitment to using recycled materials wherever possible. In this instance, PET plastics, which are typically plastic water bottles, were converted into durable fabrics which would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. Depending on the size of the bag, the production utilized anywhere from 6 to 26 recycled plastic bottles for use in the various sizes of this collection.
Timm Fenton, Vice President of Design and Development says, “The Skyway Rainier collection was designed for the end-user who leads an active lifestyle. It was a challenge but we are thrilled that all of these fabric silhouettes are made from recycled plastic and at the same time meet our high durability standards. By designing these bags in PET sustainable materials we are doing our small part to save our environment from another plastic container being tossed into a landfill.”
Interior details on all of the styles include padded laptop sleeves and multiple interior pockets constructed in a combination of solid and camo print PET fabrics.
Collection Styles from Large to Small:
Rainer Compact Duffel
