The story behind the brand.
Sandqvist was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 2004 by Anton Sandqvist. Together, with his brother Daniel and their friend Sebastian, they are the soul behind the brand. The Nordic landscape with its forests, rivers and vast unpopulated areas as well as an urban city lifestyle have always been our main inspiration. Accordingly, the Sandqvist designs are uncomplicated, functional and beautiful, with clear Swedish heritage.
We produce stylish and long lasting everyday bags. We want to do this in a way that is fair for everyone involved, and with care for the environment. This means taking responsibility for the impact of our products throughout their life cycle, on both people and planet.
Below you will be able to learn more about the materials that we use and how to best take care of your Sandqvist products. We will give you the story behind the goods, from the cotton field to your hands, but also encourage you to give your bag a second or third life. Together we can work to close the loop and make more sustainable everyday bags and items.
“Our ambition is to make long-lasting and sustainable products. We are proud to be using only organic cotton in our production, and by autumn/winter 2018, all synthetic fabrics will contain recycled fibers. These are important steps in our goal of becoming a world-leading example in sustainable fashion.”
