Airpaq is a backpack made from upcycled seatbelts, airbags and seatbelt buckles, all sourced from scrap yards. The materials are anti-bacterially washed at high temperatures and the buckles are disinfected before being remade into the backpack. The inspiration for the first prototype, designed by Michael Widmann and Adrian Goosses, came from a visit to a scrapyard as part of an assignment on the Strategic Entrepreneurship Master programme in Rotterdam in 2015. It was further developed with the aid of crowdfunding and subsequently the company launched their first collection at Innatex in August 2018. Airpaq has a roll top closure with magnets, utilises a seat belt buckle as a closing mechanism, has zipped compartments for laptop, tablet and phone or glasses, and has adjustable padded shoulder straps and padded back, base and handle. The materials from which it is made are strong and durable, being either woven polyamide or polyester webbing for the straps, woven polyamide fabric with a silicone coating textiles and ABS and steel buckles.
