Foldsack No. 3 - Ox Red & Navy
Unembellished small shoulder bag, designed to carry the essentials. Big enough to fit a map or A4 documents in the main pocket, this handy little bag is perfect for day trips and excursions in the city or country.
The top covers an outer zippered pocket when folded down, but the pocket can be accessed without needing to open the top. The G1000 material is waxed for maximum water resistance, and can be re-impregnated when this begins to fade. Textile handle at top as well as long adjustable cross-body strap. Its simple functionality and durable material mean it will be a favourite for many years to come.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
The collection builds on Fjällräven’s 50 years of experience in designing functional and durable outdoor clothing and equipment. Sustainability remains one of their guiding stars and all of their garments are designed to have exceptionally long lifespans and low environmental impact. For this reason they use G-1000® Eco, a hardwearing fabric made from recycled polyester and organic cotton, treated with Greenland Wax - a special formula of paraffin and beeswax made by a small family in the north of Sweden.
Extra reinforcements in exposed areas help to increase each garment’s durability and every product is carefully designed and constructed so that after years of use, worn details can be replaced, increasing the garment’s lifespan.
Their commitment to sustainability means that products throughout the Numbers series feature details made from reclaimed leather taken from Fjällräven Swedish belt factory. Each piece of vegetable-tanned leather can vary in colour and appearance, something which makes each garment in the Numbers series unique.
The production of the Numbers series is almost all carried out by several carefully selected suppliers in Europe. Not only does this reduce the level of transportation required and therefore the environmental impact, but it also means that they can ensure every process is completed to a high standard.
