I've always loved bags. I think this started in grade school, when at the beginning of every school year we tried to define ourselves by the style of our backpacks. I still look at a bag for myself and on others as an intensely personal object. Just like the shoes we wear, the bag we carry sends a personal message to the world.
Men - has your wife, girlfriend or sister ever asked you to hold their purse "just for a second" and what was your reaction? Remember the 90's "Murse" or "European Satchel" ? It's funny that a little, lonely bag can provoke such strong feelings. Thankfully we have relaxed a little when it comes to bag styles and we are now seeing all types of bags with gender neutral styles being worn.
Sandqvist is making my idea of what a bag should and was always meant to be - beautifully simple with carefully constructed details of rugged material and functional utility.
They also look damn stylish and we are proud to offer a selection of styles in our shop.
