New Arrivals Böle Spring 2013 April 04 2013
The Böle spring collection is intently focused on simplicity united with classic handcraft. Our vision is to reintroduce classic skills into peoples’ lives; products that can be used for many years and that age beautifully. This carefully worked and modern briefcase is a typical example, with hand-sewn parts and hammered copper rivets. Our insistence on handcrafted quality and beautiful, natural leather enhances each carefully designed product of this new line.

New collection Limited Edition AW 2012/2013 January 28 2013
Paying homage to the original and the genuine. This limited edition has been made in Böle signature leather, the bark-tanned natural leather that ages so beautifully. Simple, clean lines inspired by our products from days gone by and designed to meet the needs of today. A limited edition series that came about entirely naturally. We tan the leather by hand using spruce bark and water, a process that can take anything up to 12 months.

4th Generation Böle January 23 2013
The Böle family company was founded in 1899 on the banks of the Piteå river. Here, leather was tanned using spruce bark and water – and no chemicals. Our own-designed leather goods are always made in the traditional way, with focus on classic craftsmanship and quality. In the fourth generation, Anders Sandlund now takes over as Creative Director. In recent years Anders has been running his own design and manufacturing company, redQ, which he started halfway through his economics studies together with fellow student Jonas Forsberg. redQ works with sustainable production and has collaborated with such clients as Norrgavel, Gudrun Sjödén and Granit. The company was sold in 2012. “I have worked in the family company of and on since I was 6, so it will be great fun to take on Böle in this next phase,”
