In March 2020, ecofriendly footwear company Rothy’s debuted a collection of handbags, moving beyond its typical lineup of colorful knit flats and sneakers. Now, it’s expanding into the world of luggage with the launch of a travel bag capsule collection made with its signature knit material crafted from repurposed plastic water bottles.

In addition to overnight and weekender bags, the new collection also includes a set of pouches designed for keeping makeup or other small items organized on the go. Every single item in the collection is designed to be machine washable, so if you’re prone to coffee spills, makeup leaks, and other travel mishaps, you don’t need to worry about ruining your new bag.

Here’s a look at each piece in the new collection:

Stash the Weekender in your trunk for road trips now and in the overhead bin for flights later.

The largest bag in the collection, Rothy’s the Weekender is designed to fit everything you’d need for a two- to three-day trip and is sized to meet most airlines’ overhead bin carry-on dimensions.

The Overnighter can double as a personal item to fit underneath airplane seats.
