Worn Again

Souvenir Sunday: Virgin hot air balloons and Eurostar uniforms

While researching a story about recycling efforts by airlines and airports, I came across Worn Again, a London company that made a line of small bags and jackets out of a decommissioned Virgin hot air balloon (you can order items in any color, as long as its red).

Worn Again also makes a variety of accessories out of decommissioned Eurostar uniforms. And while everything in the on-line store is very eco and desirable, everything is beyond the $10 limit we set for Souvenir Sunday.

Except this: a mobile phone holder made from decommissioned Eurostar staff cardigan uniforms.

Looks more like a lost sock to me; but I applaud the concept.

Have you found a great souvenir while Stuck at the Airport? If it’s $10 or under, “of” the city or region and, ideally a bit offbeat, please snap a photo, jot down some notes and send them along. You souvenir may be featured on a future edition of Souvenir Sunday.  And if you find a great local food at an airport, take a photo of that too.  We’re thinking of making Snack Saturday a permanent feature.
