"I want to create a balanced mix between city and motion, function and aesthetics - in a transparent and sustainable way"
The Stockholm based company Bukvy was founded by Elena Ekström in 2015. It started with an idea of the ultimate bag. One bag in many forms, evolving as life does. Life with jobs on the run, living apart relationships, nights out, many activities in one day and too many things to carry. Bags, backpacks, totes and clutches to fit their daily belongings: computer, sketch block, wallet, lunch box, gym clothes, keys, books, snacks, glasses, phone, clothes and so on. Already as a kids, I dreamed about making the ultimate escape and survival bag. It needed to float, contain milkshake, fit life in space and hopefully a best friend.
Today my dreams are still big but in new ways. From what started as a longing to be on the run, a desire to be free and the satisfaction of knowing where your belongings are ended up in a life project.
It has taken hours of construction, discussion, craftsmanship, and testing to get to the final result and it is with great pride we are giving you our ultimate bag collection – the Bukvys. Bukvys first bag was the Bo Bardi bag, made in Spain by genuine calf leather and goat suede. Today we produce our items in both Spain and Portugal in our carefully chosen studios.
It is a small but focused collection made to simplify and organize the daily life of urban people through a combination of function and aesthetics.
