Our friends from the Swedish bags Sandqvist are ready with the new SS12. As usually, the deep love to the Scandinavian nature, with its vast unpopulated areas, soaring mountains and remote cabins has always had a deep impact on the Sandqvist designs. This is reflected over the materials which are heavy and durable; such as 18 Oz cotton canvas, 1000 Denier Cordura and vegetable tanned leather of the best quality.

This collection has been improved with details in previous models, adding a new palette with a range of tones typical from the forest, including rust red, saffron, coffee brown, dark navy, grey and black.

The SS12 collection contains several new backpacks, great for both urban city life and a day trip into the wild, as well as a new and improved version of Sandqvists popular messenger bag. The classic canvas series is updated with new styles. Among the leather bags and cases you will find a new briefcase for Macbook 13” and a new smartphone case. In total the SS12 collection contains over 40 new styles.
