Sweden has blessed us with the best house DJs, the hottest Scandivanian beauties, the best budget furniture brand (so good that even Balenciaga wants to be them), ABBA and now, a backpack that boasts of durability, versatility and quality.
If you haven’t seen this backpack roaming the streets, you’ve got to wonder which rock you’ve been living under.
Fans of Fjallraven’s iconic Kanken bags would know that they really do live up to their self proclamations. Made out of hard-wearing firm vinylon and a main compartment that unzips entirely, Kanken’s probably the bag that even the Vikings of old would have used on their raids to store their battleaxes and vodka (Viking drinking game: take a shot every time you behead someone).
Kanken is presenting a whole new range of backpacks in fresh webbing strap designs, and to celebrate, you can play Karl Lagerfield and come up with your very own designs for Kanken Southeast Asia’s #patternyourkankenSEA contest. Another one to add to your list of bragging rights for possibly the next year or so.
