The Bag-daddy?

EVERYTING is so Swede at the moment, especially the new Sandqvist bags that have arrived in Shepherds Bush.

Produced to the highest specifications, the manufacturers who specialise in leather and tote bags have made the backpack a really sexy item to own.

Straight out of Stockholm, Sandqvist’s STIG rucksack, which comes in red and a light green are so stylish it makes you want to take to Fjords or the hills at least.

The canvas bag, which can hold up to a 13” laptop comes with no lining and one inside pocket with the main body held secure with thick, vegetable tanned leather straps. The bag is simple, but classic in design. Making it timeless really.

The Roald bag, which comes in both khaki and blue, utilizes the simple lines of the rucksack to full effect, with two tan topped outer pockets, zip fastened, and one main body pocket inside, with a tanned vegetable leather strap.

The blue or navy bag colouring is a nice cotton relaxed blue and combines the lather tanned sections well. The bags hark back to the days of our youth and could be seen at home outdoors anywhere as well as on the high street.

Completing the bags on offer is the iconic sailor holdall bag.

This 30-litre sack, has tanned leather and rope straps, plus a neat zip at the back to ensure easy entry. I know a few girls like that, but that’s another story.

The adjustable strap means the bag, which comes in navy, can be used as a shoulder bag or rucksack. So stylish, multi-purpose and beautifully made, not a bad all-round package then!
