Fjällräven Samlaren is a unique collection that gives new life to surplus material through an innovative use of leftover fabric. The capsule collection includes caps, jackets and two popular bag designs — the Kånken and Totepack.
The collection is best described by Henrik Andersson, Fjällräven’s Global Creative Director: ” It’s an idea and a product initiative to use waste and leftovers from production, and turn it into functional and valuable equipment.” He says that the starting point was when they had stock of fabric that could not be used in the normal production run — because of colour variation and limited quantities — so these pieces of excess fabric were developed into a new line of garments and accessories. The quality of every product under the Samlaren range is made to the same high standards as the main collection, with a focus on products that are suitable for everyday outdoor scenarios. The collection is also extremely limited because the team hopes to eventually eliminate the need for this concept, by minimising waste and leftover fabrics in their main production.
For Singapore, only the bags are available, and in limited quantities. Here are the designs:
