Fjallraven Kanken Brand
Made for the outdoors Fjallraven specialise in clothing and accessories that merge style and functionality perfectly. Crafted using environmentally friendly materials, weatherproof coats and backpacks make up the bulk of its collection in shapes ranging from small to oversized, including the instantly recognisable Kanken pack. Look out for the signature ‘Artic fox’ logo from which the brand takes its name.
Fjällräven created the first Kånken in 1978 to spare the backs of school children, as back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups. Simple, stylish and functional, the Kånken backpack soon became a common sight in schools around the country, quickly spreading to cities around the world as an iconic (yet highly functional) Swedish export.
