The Kanken rucksack




Recently I brought the Fjalraven re-kanken backpack in sunflower yellow. It was pretty expensive at £70 but I really wanted a backpack that was going to last me a long time and a bag I could bring with me anywhere, it only made sense but to buy it in my favourite colour-yellow.

It is big enough to fit my a4 folder and all my school books in it which is really useful . I went for the re-kanken instead of the original because one; it is better for the environment being made out of 100% polyester plastic bottles and using eco friendly spin-dye technology (ohh how eco i sound) but two; I also liked that the logo blends in with the bag giving it a more contemporary feel in my opinion, I was debating though as I equally like the 90’s feel of the logo being more on show.

I love that backpacks are becoming more on trend now, they are so much more comfortable to carry around with you. it is a bag that would be great for travelling too and ill definitely be seen in a crowd! I’m really pleased with the choice of colour though as I  was concerned with it being too bright which I’m not too keen on, It is a lovely between mustard and bright yellow colour which will probably get nicer and a little more faded over time. Yellow also adds a bit of colour to a minimalistic outfit and is a positive colour too.

what backpacks do you like?
