Get yourself a bag and go have one!
How do I pronounce äventyr ?
We say it more like this "ah-ven-tur", but if you want to say it the Swedish way, you can go here.
Are you Swedish?
We are American, with Swedish and Nordic heritage. DeAnn's great, great Grandmother, Amelia, immigrated from Sweden to the USA at the age of 28, eventually arriving in Cloquet, Minnesota where she owned a tailoring business (today we would call it a 'bespoke' tailor business). What a predecessor DeAnn has found out about during her journey with äventyr! Amelia was both a woman business owner and tailor! How fortuitous our heritage can be, yes?
What is a fika?
“Fika is much more than having a coffee. It is a social phenomenon, a legitimate reason to set aside a moment for quality time”. ~@swedense .
äventyr believes strongly in the power of a fika. And because we do, we make products to make it easy for you to focus less on getting ready for the bike ride there, and more on the conversation when you get there.
Where are you located?
We are headquartered in Minneapolis, MN USA.
Do you sell your bags in stores?
Yes, please see our stockist page.
