It’s too bad that an airline didn’t think of this first and offer the bit of nostalgia as part of its first-class amenities package. Then again, maybe Flug Zeug will get into that business.

The company’s last product was a belt modeled after airplane safety straps.

From the man who brought you of belts made from airplane safety straps, now comes yet another aviation-inspired fashion statement.

Using old decommissioned airline flotation vests, Andreas Roesler-Schmidt, the founder of Vienna-based Flug Zeug, fashioned bright yellow, water-resistant sleeves for personal electronic devices. The ‘upcycled’ product, which the company calls simply ‘SLEEVE,’ comes in three sizes – for iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini.

They go for between $64 and $91.
