    United has teamed with fashion studies students at Columbia College Chicago and the Re:new Project to make travel bags out of more than 20 old "Fly the Friendly Skies" fabric banners that used to hang at ORD.

    The banners bacame about 100 carry-on backpacks and duffels that were hand sewn and feature skyline images from UA hubs.

    They'll be available Friday at Backpacks sell for $135, duffels for $150, proceeds go to benefit Re:new, an nonprofit that provides employment opportunities for refugee women, and to the Alto Mayo Forest Carbon Project in Peru.
