A Sustainable Lifestyle

A Sustainable Lifestyle

Why would you have a ‘bike bag’ and a ‘life bag’?  Why wouldn’t you have a bag that works for your life?  äventyr handcrafts ‘sustainable’ bags.  But what do we mean by that, and what does it mean for you?  Sustainability has been an important consideration to äventyr since day one.  But the way we think about it is much more than just the materials.
Direct to Family:  Hand Deliveries and Community

Direct to Family: Hand Deliveries and Community

Ever since we started äventyr, it has been important for Kurt and I to find a way to meet our customers in-person.  The puzzle for us has been the best way to do this and ~ not have a retail presence, and not be at a market every weekend. So this year we chose to participate in select events that aligned well with our brand and our beliefs.  This strategy was a success for us, and there was a bonus...  

Hand-delivering our product and interfacing with our customers one-on-one.  

Building a community; this has been what it is about for us from the beginning.

Moments of Clarity, The Female Economy, and more than a Bicycle Bag Business

Moments of Clarity, The Female Economy, and more than a Bicycle Bag Business

Every woman I have been in a room with has a story.  These stories women have are what has always intrigued me, before äventyr and now with äventyr.  In those moments as a new entrepreneur, when I have felt intimidated, or not equal in a room, I remind myself that these are women, like me.  Real women, in real life, with real stories.  And this has been a MOMENT!

Local äventyr

Local is a lifestyle äventyr supports.  At äventyr we love keeping it local - it is how and where we eat, it is how and where we shop, and it is the ethics behind our business.  At äventyr we believe in supporting local year round; in the Summer we put our bicycle bags on our bike racks and roll out, and in the Winter we bring our bags on our shoulders for a hygge escape.

Define Yourself. Don't be Defined.

You do not have to define yourself by being like us, but we do hope that perhaps...  you will find that investing in an äventyr bag can be the impetus for finally being able to define you.
Nature + äventyr

Nature + äventyr

Don’t get us wrong, we love being urbanites, that’s why we make bags for the urban adventure.  We have spent our entire adult lives as urban dwellers. But, time in deep nature is central to who we are.

What inspires you to be your best you?  Surly it is the people you surround yourself with, the people you aspire to be, and the people that you follow who inspire you. Real people.  Let's be real.

We all need bright spots in our days.  That spark of fun, that special something that enhances your everyday.  At äventyr we believe that can be one of our bags, and that can include color.
