In 2004 the Swede Anton Sandqvist began to sew the first bags in his own basement as a compensation for his stressful job as a technical engineer. Soon more friends and acquaintances wanted to have one of Anton's self-made bags. His brother Daniel and the common school friend Sebastian luckily had contact to the Stockholm fashion scene. So the way was not so far and the label Sandqvist was born.
Founder Anton Sandqvist
Inspired by the endless wide of the Nordic landscape and nature, as well as the urban lifestyle of the vibrant city of Stockholm, they create appropriate backpacks and bags that are a home in both worlds. Like good friends with whom you spend the next outdoor trip or simply dive into the big city life after work, the Sandqvist backpacks are always the perfect companions.
Uncomplicated design, high functionality and the mix of different materials are reminiscent of Swedish tradition and create a simple Scandinavian look. For Anton Sandqvist, the long-lasting life of the products is one of the most important characteristics.
To achieve this, Sandqvist processes high-quality materials such as vegetable tanned leather and heavy, untreated cotton canvas. Since the beginning, production has been carried out by small family-run factories in India under fair working conditions.
The brand has now arrived internationally status, but the journey is not over yet! They will surprise us with new upcoming designs.
