Fjällräven introduces new version of a classic rucksack

d20aad53-277e-4214-bee8-93f926250878

Swedish outdoor brand Fjällräven has launched a new version of its iconic Kånken backpack, celebrating the design of the very first model in 1978.

The new Tree-Kånken is made using a new, wood-based fabric called Pine Weave and Fjällräven says it merges the company’s heritage and future.

Over the years, the Kånken has only been slightly redesigned as the backpack became a household name all over the world. Like the Tree-Kånken, the first version had handle straps that were sewn lengthwise down the front, as well as no visible front pocket.

Pine Weave is a patented new fabric made from sustainably sourced wood pulp from cultivated forests in Sweden.
