Plane is a new company based in Great Britain that builds tough, high-end bags from repurposed aircraft seat materials. These aeronautical textiles have been developed to be exceedingly hard-wearing, flame proof, stain proof, and lightweight – making them ideal for use in travel bags.
The Weekend Bag comes in two styles, one is plain blue and the other has some of the original patterns from the aircraft seat material. The base and straps are made from vegetable tanned Italian leather, and each bag is individually made in Britain.
Ben has had his work featured on CNN, Popular Mechanics, Smithsonian Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, the official Pinterest blog, the official eBay Motors blog, BuzzFeed, and many more.
Silodrome was founded by Ben back in 2010, in the years since the site has grown to become a world leader in the alternative and vintage motoring sector, with millions of readers around the world and many hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
