With quality and multi-function in mind, Swedish bag brand Sandqvist have teamed up with bicycle manufacturer Vélosophy for a highly functional 3-way backpack. Water resistant ripstop fabric and mixed in leather details are used to create a contemporary and luxurious look, while you choose if you want to carry it as a backpack, briefcase or shoulder bag. As part of the Sandqvist x Vélosophy collaboration, Sandqvist will donate 100 2-way briefcase/messengers to charity organisation The Fortress, who work towards providing young, ejected and pregnant women in Uganda a temporary home and safe environment during their pregnancy/delivery.
