Behind the Durable Design of the Kanken
Not many labels can boast that they have produced one of the most prominent silhouettes that can be seen across the world. Fjällräven is one of the few, however, who can. Created from the seed of an idea to produce a backpack that was comfortable to carry. Almost 60 years, and several product lines, later and the appetite for Fjällräven bags continue to grow.
The “Arctic Fox” is now not just a label for adventurers. It is a label that can be seen on almost every commute across the world’s major cities, an image that is driven by its infamous Kånken model. Originally created in 1978 as an orthopaedic solution to help prevent back problems the silhouette was designed around the size of two A4 binders, giving the bag a sleek aesthetic, as well as been the perfect size for day to day usage. Constructed from durable water resistant Vinlyon F fabric, the Kånken also promises to perform upon a practical level. With minimal wastage, due to the bags straight-line design, the handles and shoulder straps are made from a single piece of webbing, adding to the bags overall quality of construction, which is undeniable. Original models crafted in 1982 can still be seen as if almost new 35 years later.
