Available in a plethora of colours and in a scaled-down size, Fjällräven’s Kånken Mini back pack is perfect for children or adults carrying light.

Timex Archive Camper MK1 Fabric Strap Watch

A re-release of the first Camper model from the 80’s, the MK1 is a handsome take on a classic watch aesthetic. With a resin case and a grosgrain fabric strap, this one wears tough and smart at the same time.
