History of Sandqvist
Company owner Anton Sandqvist says he first thought about starting the label in 2004 when he became uninspired by the dull, unstylish laptop backs that he would cart to and from work every day. He soon realised that if he wanted a bag to reflect his style he would have to pay an arm and a leg for it, so, in turn, decided to create his own. With only elementary training in sewing, his own creation was amazingly still a success amongst peers and friends who all asked where he had bought it from. Knowing that he was onto something, Anton used his previous business knowledge along with his first creation to launch Sandqvist.
