Fjällräven produces an absolutely enormous number of premium outdoor garments and pieces of gear, with everything from jackets and pants to tents and sleeping bags to beanies and backpacks. And with the Swedish outdoor brand manufacturing such an extensive catalog, it unsurprisingly finds itself sitting on an enormous stockpile of leftover and scrap materials. Rather than disposing of these bits, Fjällräven has opted to repurpose them into recycled-construction versions of existing offerings to deliver its new, limited edition Samlaren Collection.
Translating to ”gatherer” in Swedish, the Samlaren Collection is almost entirely made from leftover fabrics and proprietary constructions — such as the sustainable gear brand’s G-1000 material — from Fjällräven’s factories and mills. Sporting a new “Fjällräven Samlaren” logo patches and manufactured in solid and contrasting multi-color options, the limited-run collection is comprised of a Kånken backpack with a primary Vinylon F construction and G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco S pockets, a tote bag with a G-1000 pocket that’s made from recycled polyester, several G-1000 jackets, and a five-panel hat crafted from G-1000 Air (a combination of recycled polyester and organic cotton). Available now, the Fjällräven Samlaren Collection starts at $40 for the hat and goes up to $255 for the jackets.
