Current Love: Fjallraven Backpacks

Hi there!  I was just browsing around online the other day when I came across this post from the blog "Lost in the Wardrobe" and it rekindled my love for Fjallraven backpacks.  Keep reading to check out some beautiful photos of these backpacks and get a little bit more information on them!

Quick Facts
  • They're from the Swedish brand Fjallraven.
  • They were originally made for schoolchildren in 1978.
  • They used to be the bags that children were embarrassed to wear, but their parents forced them to use them anyway.
  • They come in a wide variety of colours ranging from black to ox red, to ochre to teal.
  • They're made from Vinylon F fabric, which does an amazing job at repelling moisture.
  • They come in a few different sizes; laptop sizes, mini, big, etc.
  • The price range is about $55-$100 depending on where you get it from and what size you prefer.
The thing that really made me fall in love with these bags was how it had a strap so you could hold it like a handbag, but it also had straps so you could wear it as a backpack.  I think that this would be perfect for school and I'm really hoping to get one for the upcoming school year.  Though it is pricey, I've heard nothing but good things about these bags.  Well, there have been the occasional bad review, but whatever.

  1. Thank you so much contributing my blog! I was pretty amazed, when I accidentally found it here. ♥ I love the ox red one too. It's one of my favourites, but I have love and hate relationship with the colour now, because of my hair colour. I have a black one, but I'd really like to get a colourful one too.


    1. I was more than happy to mention your blog, after all, that WAS what made me fall in love all over again with these backpacks. It's a shame that it's hard to love the ox red one so much because of your hair colour, though... But who knows, maybe you'll be able to make it work. :)

  2. I like them! They look nice. Definitely better than the kippling ones.

  3. The post that started my obsession with these bags... I love the pale pink one and purple one, too bad they're so expensive, but a girl can dream right?

    1. Aha, definitely! They are definitely a splurge, but judging from the good reviews, I'd say they're worth it if you don't have to carry around a huge load.
