PUP x AMTRAK
#RAILFAN #REMAKETHEFUTURE #AMTRAK #PUPINDY
In the summer of 2018, Amtrak began updating the interiors of their Acela Express trains, which run along the northeast corridor between Boston and Washington, D.C.
Over the next several months, all 6,080 leather seats will be replaced.
And that’s where we came in. PUP began a collaboration with Amtrak, and we've been working hard to transform the seat leather into a brand new line of adventure-ready products.
The Agent Backpack, the Passenger Tote, and the Dispatch Dopp Kit are the first products in a very limited edition line of travel gear. We’ll be launching small batches of hand-built Amtrak goods each month over the next year until the leather runs out.
We're only just getting started. Join us for the journey.
