Originally introduced in 1978 as a backpack to prevent back problems emerging among Swedish school children, the Kånken quickly gained worldwide popularity becoming a beloved icon for both kids and adults across the globe. Two A4 sized school binders helped determine the size and widely recognized box shape. The celebrated design has held its position as the number one seller in Fjällräven’s daypack category for nearly four decades. The recognizable straight shape of the pack also brings a sustainable edge, as there is almost no waste when the pattern parts are cut from the fabric. With eight sizes and over 40 color options, the Kånken Collection is larger than ever. The Kånken Classic retails for $75.00, while additional sizes (Mini, Big, Maxi and Laptop) range in price from $65.00 – $120.00.
