I love a brand with a good story. One that makes classic, functional, and high-quality pieces, but also one that cares about the world we live in and contributes to it in a meaningful way. Enter Fjällräven: a company that encourages people to get out and enjoy nature, while also ensuring their products have the lowest possible impact on the environment (no real fur here!). What started with a framed backpack in Sweden in the 1950’s, Fjällräven (which means “Arctic Fox” in Swedish) has grown into a national brand that can be found in nearly 20 countries around the world. With the recent arrival of the colder weather (and with Christmas just a couple of short months away) I’m excited to share with you today some of the Fjällräven items on my wishlist. Let’s get started!
1. Luhkka No. 3 Cape
Swoon. I am obsessed with this gorgeous knee-length cape. Water and wind resistant, and made from recycled polyester and organic cotton, this cape is a perfect example of fashion-meets-function. Wear it on it’s own in Spring or Fall, or layer it in the winter; it’s even reversible! This cape is a chic take on the typical jacket or coat.
2. Tablet Case
If you’re going to invest in a tablet, you’ll want to keep it safe. Made of super-durable fabric and lined with foam, this tablet case is the perfect way to do just that. It comes in 3 different colours (but how gorgeous is the red?!), and has a front pocket to stash your headphones and accessories.
3. Kånken Photo Insert
As a blogger, it’s no surprise I love photography. However, taking my DSLR camera, lenses, and various accessories with me isn’t always easy or convenient. That’s why I love this foam insert that fits into Fjällräven’s classic Kånken backpack, and makes it easy to protect and carry your camera, extra lenses, and anything else your heart desires, with you on the go.
4. Kånken Backpack
Naturally, a Kånken backpack is then also a wishlist essential. Created in 1978 in an effort to prevent back problems with school children, this backpack has become an adult favourite as well. Made with vinylon fabric (lightweight and durable), and with narrow shoulder straps, it’s guaranteed to be be both comfortable and functional. Even better? If you’re out at night, the logo doubles as a reflector! This backpack comes in a wide variety of colour options, but my personal favourite is this gorgeous royal blue and ox-blood red version.
5. Kiruna Beanie
This classic, unisex beanie is a fall and winter essential. As someone who likes to be warm (at pretty much all times), I love that this hat will keep your head and ears toasty, but also looks fashionable. My personal favourite is this salt-and-pepper grey version, but it also comes in other colours. Whether you’re out for a hike or just running weekend errands, this beanie’s double-knitted wool and acrylic blend material whisks away moisture, ensuring you stay warm and dry.
