Kanken Art

€89.99 Sale Save

The Kanken was created in 1978 to help prevent back problems among Swedish school children, and today has become one of Fjallraven's most beloved products. Equally suited to journeys to and from school or work, as it is to trekking and travelling. Kånken Art is what you get when you invite artists to express their relationship with nature using the classic backpack as their canvas.
