Taking the classic 1978 designed Kanken backpack as inspiration, an innovative collaboration with two Swedish artists has created something extraordinary: Kånken Art.
Every backpack is an expression of creativity. And every backpack gives back to nature through the Arctic Fox Initiative. A special edition, to celebrate the inspiring diversity that is present in both nature and us humans.
Kånken Art is what you get when you invite artists to express their relationship with nature using the classic backpack as their canvas. This special edition is made from G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco S with a unique graphic print. Just like all Kånken backpacks, it has a removable seat pad, front pocket, pliant shoulder straps and handles at the top. Part of Fjällräven’s Arctic Fox initiative, where part of sales go to environment and climate projects.
Straight backs are happy backs. Kånken was launched in 1978 to spare the backs of school children. Back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups and shoulder bags were popular. The backpack soon became a common sight at pre-schools and nature schools around the country. It is just as popular today, and an excellent choice for school, outings or biking to work.
