An usually durable design
Kanken was first created back in 1978 to help prevent back problems that were emerging among Swedish school children. Two A4 school binders determined its size. Since then, Kanken has just increased in popularity and is now used by children and adults all over the world. The bag's timeless design made from durable, water-resistance fabric Vinylon F has never fallen out of fashion. Its straight lines have an additional advantage from a sustainability perspective: there is almost no waste when the pattern parts are cut from the fabric. The shoulder straps are made from a single long piece of webbing that is integrated with the back handle, a detail that also contributes to increased sustainability.
The Kanken was the first backpack in the world to be climate compensated. That was back in 2008 and since then we have compensated the climate-influencing emissions released in connection with the production and transportation of Kanken. Today Kanken is available in more colors, sizes and models than ever.
