A BAG COMPANY BORN OUT OF FRUSTRATION AND PASSION
In all honesty, the world simply doesn’t need another bag brand. But we - as mobile urban citizens - need smarter bags. Bags that make our digital life easier and that give us power to charge our devices. Bags that use the power of the sun to charge stuff so that we can help to save our planet. Bags that are flexible and can organize all our stuff. Bags that look fantastic and match whatever you’re wearing. And that’s an Apelock Bag.
Apelock was founded in Stockholm, Sweden by Jan Loosme. After designing, sourcing manufacturers, learning everything about solar cells, prototyping, redesigning, more prototyping, shipping, storing, building websites and then writing these very words…we are suddenly here. Hello.
”This journey started around five years ago. Living in Stockholm, I spent my days on my bike between work, exercise, hanging out and some travelling - and I was always looking for the ultimate bag that would solve all my needs. I wanted a bag that suited my lifestyle, but also one that helped me charge my phone and other digital stuff. But I couldn’t find it. And so, like any sane person, rather than compromise with an ordinary ‘bag’, the only solution was to make one.”
A huge hug to all those who have been involved so far: Ann-Ca Brundin, Hampus Östberg, Anthony Ackenhoff, Tor Norinder, Eva Iding, Håkan Olofsson, Jesper Weissglas and Odd Glodeck. And of course my family, Lotta, Johan and Mikaela for your patience". - Jan
