A special edition of Kånken Mini, made entirely from polyester recycled from plastic bottles. Dyed with SpinDye technology that radically reduces the amount of water, energy and chemicals used. A neat little backpack with the same genius design as its predecessor, but optimised so it can be recycled in a system that saves nature's resources.
Re-Kånken Mini is suitable for smaller children and even adults who want to have a small backpack. It is perfect for a change of clothes for kindergarten, a packed lunch for an outing - or as an everyday bag for a wallet, water bottle, snack, etc.
The shoulder straps are long and adjustable so they fit both little and big backs. They can be fastened with a button so they are not in the way when they are in their shortest position.
The main compartment has a large zippered opening that makes it easy to pack and unpack. It comes with a foam seat pad in the inside back pocket that keeps the contents pressing against the back. There are also two flat side pockets and a zippered pocket on the front. Embroidered logo. Address tag inside the main compartment.
SpinDye® - Simultaneous spinning and dyeing – saving water, chemicals and energy.
Traditional textile dyeing is done by immersing fabric in a dye bath, rinsing it and then drying it. With SpinDye® the pigments are instead added to the spinning solution before it is extruded through the spinneret to become fibers for fabric weaving.
Through this process, the color pigments become a part of the fiber and the SpinDye® fabric gains excellent colour fastness that stands up to light, washing, rubbing, per-spiration – even bleach.
The environmental benefits are the most important reason behind Fjällräven using SpinDye® fabrics in their collection. But better colorfastness in combination with less chemical waste and the reduced use of water makes SpinDye® a great choice also on behalf of the superior quality standards.
These are the reductions with SpinDye® recycled pet, when compared to virgin polyester with tradition dyeing.:
75 % less water
67 % less chemicals
39 % less energy
20 % lower carbon footprint
