Meet the maker: Sandqvist from Sweden
February 4, 2017
Walking down the river, bared foot with in one hand your favorite sneakers. Even thoo it’s winter you can’t stop that feeling if you check Sandqvists website. The brand from 2 brothers from Sweden is unique and has a great minimalistic vibe.
Anton Sandqvist founded the brand in 2004. Together with his brother Daniel and friend Sebastian, he is the soul of the brand that is founded in Stockholm, Sweden. The brand is known for its bags and accessories. Their products are sold in 25 countries. I don’t know if the products are fair made but it looks like that they are made in Europe so that’s a good thing if you focus on buying products that are made under ethical work circumstances.
The beautiful Nordic landscape with its forest, rivers and vast unpopulated areas inspires them to make the bags. Uncomplicated, functional and just beautiful. That’s how they describe their brand and I totally degree with this desciption. At their website, they share beautiful stories of people that inspire and supported them during the road.
Urban bags and accessories
In their web shop, they sell stylish items for men and woman. They have more dan 7 types of bags. Next, to my shoulder bag, I also found amazing laptop sleeves. I mean: look at this. Who doesn’t love this?
My advice: buy a bag for your loved one for Valentine’s day and steal it ;).
Sandqvist Anna bag
Thanks to Fairaporter, I received the amazing Anna bag. The Anna bag is made from a soft type of leader. What I really like about this bag is that you wear it close to your skin thanks to the straps that are attached at the backside of the bag. The bag is small but wide enough for a notebook, phone, wallet, and sunnies (25 × 18 × 5 cm).
For me, it’s the perfect bag. I wear it to meetings, to visit new cliënts but also when I have to do some groceries. I can’t remember when I used my other bags for the last time. haha.
Love the look and feel as well? You can purchase yours here for €179,-
Thanks Fairaporter and Sandqvist for this amazing gift! Unfortunately I haven’t found a store in The Netherlands that sells Sandqvist, but you can alway purchase an item online.
