Established in 2004 by Anton Sandqvist, the Swedish brand, that goes by the family name of its founder, is specialzed in advanced bag and backpack styles. Inspired by his devotion to outdoor life and the design of an old Swiss messenger bag, Sandqvist decided to put his creative skills into the developments of bags. These items have to be casual, rugged and stylish at the same time, plus Sandqvist wants his products to be as minimalist as possible, thanks to his appreciation to Skandinavian understatement. His early devotion to outdoor life as well as a childhood spent in rural Sweden made a deep impact on the Sandqvist range; the signature landscapes with vast unpopulated areas, soaring mountains and remote cabins as well as being attracted by urban city lifestyles have always been the main inspirations of Sandqvist designs. So it’s hardly surprising that the brand’s bags and backpacks are equipped with clear, simple lines and made from durable fabrics highlighted by leather details, inspired by Swedish heritage.
