The Kanken Art backpack is a practical and unique new mini-purse. It is made from G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco S, and has special edition with a unique graphic print. A removable seat pad, front pocket, pliant shoulder straps and handles at the top- just like all Kanken backpacks.

Since 2017, when Kanken was named craft art by The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design, Fjallraven has worked together with Swedish artists to create unique and limited editions of the iconic Kanken backpacks and accessories. They asked the illustrators to use the Kanken bag as their canvas and express their bond with nature. Kanken Art was born!
The Kanken Art backpack has been designed to be worn as a casual daypack or overnight bag. Fjallraven has worked together with Moa Hoff, an illustrator from Stockholm, Sweden. She created a beautiful handmade pattern, inspired by her own memories in nature. In this short video, Moa Hoff explains her relationship with Kanken and how she came up with this design. You can find all the information on Moa Hoff, her love for Kanken and the creation of this unique en experimental design here.

Kanken Art backpack during travel
Although the Kanken backpack was originally designed for school, it’s usable for any purpose. We love them for travel! They are extremely lightweight, durable, perfect for carry on and of course, they look good. As from now, our Kanken backpacks come along with us wherever we go.
We have a Fjallraven Kanken mini and Kanken Art mini bag for our girls. Our girls have been so happy with their little backpack. Like almost all kids, they love to pack and carry their own stuff. The Kanken mini backpack has been the perfect size for them. Not too small, so they can take what they want, but not too big either, which means it doesn’t get too heavy. When we go for a walk, it fits a water bottle, some explorer gear and an extra sweater.
Kanken Art also offers a choice of large size custom leather backpacks. Their larger sized bags are designed to carry more items, such as books or notebooks, and to accommodate the expanding arms of a larger person. The main compartment of these bags is oversized to hold all of your belongings, while still allowing you to have room left for accessories and more compartments. This type of bag allows you to enjoy the benefits of both a book bag and a traditional backpack. Kanken Art offers many different designs to choose from, making their products flexible and truly adaptable to every lifestyle. So, if you have always wanted a classy designer bag, without sacrificing function, Kanken Art has the answer.
