Fjällräven has launched its Samlaren collection, the Swedish term for “the gatherer.”
Rooted in Fjällräven’s commitment to creating quality garments and the tradition of not letting resources go to waste, all products bearing the Samlaren badge were made using leftover fabrics (deadstock) from its mills and factories, combined, in numbered limited editions.
The first Samlaren product release is a curated collection of reinvented classics made from surplus G-1000 fabric, including the Greenland Jacket in color-block patchwork, the Kånken backpack and updated versions of its tote bag and cap.
Sustainability and innovation are at the root of Fjällräven’s design ethos. In 1964, its founder, Åke Nordin, held onto a roll of uncut fabric during the company’s Thermo Tent development. A few years later, the fabric was cut to make the brand’s first Greenland Jacket.
