For Kånken lovers who only want to carry a few things, we have scaled down the classic backpack to create a small shoulder bag. Just like the original, it is made of exceptionally hardwearing Vinylon fabric and has the characteristic format with pliant straps and practical storage. A little pocket on the back is perfect for your phone and other small items you want to be able to get to fast.

Care & Repair
Extend the lifetime of your favourite backpack
We’re not quite sure when it happened, but Kånken has become a trusted essential for millions of people around the world. It’s the backpack you take with you on adventures, shopping, to school or work. It’s a simple little bag, but with the right care it can last and last and last.
Straight backs are happy backs. Kånken was launched in 1978 to spare the backs of school children. Back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups and shoulder bags were popular. The backpack soon became a common sight at pre-schools and nature schools around the country. It is just as popular today, and an excellent choice for school, outings or biking to work.
