As cyclists, hikers, campers, and nature lovers who spend as much time as we can outside, we are in tune with our surroundings and the impact climate change is having on them. It is important to us that we are aware of the issues, and do our part to help try to change the course of the present to create a better future. We alone will not change the world, but by having a company that thoughtfully considers how we make our products, using our company voice and dollars to support positive change, and personally shopping with our dollars .
I have learned that living a domestic and creative life is a gift to be embraced. I make bicycle bags because I believe deeply in the power of bicycling.

We chose to name our brand 'äventyr' for multiple reasons: our Nordic Heritage, our continual desire for adventure, a word that was attractive both aesthetically and makes one want to know more, a word that symbolizes what we believe in and can grown with our brand as it evolves, a reflection of 'The North' in which we live that embraces all things Nordic, and new connections with the past.
