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,”
