Everybody's a fan of Sandqvist, the brand of functional and sustainable bags
After stockholm, london and berlin, sandqvist, the swedish brand of practical accessories, opens a boutique in paris. we had the chance to meet one of the three founders and return to the very essence of their design, between functionality and sustainability. interview with daniel sandqvist, co-founder:our core values have always been quality, functionality, sustainability and scandinavia so this is something we always keep in mind when we design, when we sell, when we do stores, in everything that we do.the first thing for us in the early days was to make a long-lasting product. we used recycled polyester, recycled nylon, organic cotton that we sourced directly from the farmers then we used full leather bags made from scandinavian leather, so hides from scandinavia. our scandinavian roots are super important to us because that’s where we grew up and we spend a lot of time outdoors fishing, hiking, skiing, this kind of stuff, and we get a lot of inspiration from the nature around us and then i guess it’s just in our dna to make simple designs.
