Kanken


 
I don't need a new bag but I really love the Kanken backpacks. They look so vintage.

In Berlin I saw them at Scandiavian Objects. The last  couple of weeks I see them everywhere in town. The bags are from the 70's and are made in Sweden. They come in so many cool colors.

Anybody who has one?

Yes, I have a yellow one, but I don't use it very often. It get's to heavy on my shoulders. I like the look, but it don't work as back pack (....for me).

My first school bag was a greyish blue Kånken. The year was 1983. My son has one in light aqua, he started in 1st grade this Fall :) My partner has a forest green one with room for a laptop, I want one too!
