Announcement    ***Skogsvana open for business***

We are happy to announce the reopening of Skogsvana after a period of time isolating due to the recent epidemic.

In this time we have been busy refining our current product range and designing new, innovative products that ooze the known and loved Skogsvana quality and functionality. This time has enabled us to refine our products not only at a design level but also on a constructional and materialistic basis too. For many years we have been using the finest vegetable tanned leather you can get your hands on coupled with a handful of creation and finishing techniques we have refined over the years to create the highest quality bushcraft items in the industry, bar none! New to Skogsvana in 2020, we are working with one of the oldest known bridle leather manufacturers, not only in England but in the world! Their quality is unrivaled producing possibly the finest leather of its kind anywhere on earth 🌎

Utilising this newly acquired leather means that we are now able to offer a highly consistent colour range throughout our leather products. It also means a slightly faster production time benefiting both Skogsvana and you as the consumer, ultimately leading to more time and energy free to focus on developing new and exciting products!

Alongside our partnerships in the leather industry, we are also working closely with one of the oldest most prestigious waxed cotton canvas suppliers to produce a specialist waxed canvas. This proprietary material is designed and built to withstand the rigors of the harshest weather and environment planet earth has to offer....no joke. This will primarily be featured on our very illusive and upcoming rucksacks which we have in development. Keep a keen eye out for these....they are sure to not disappoint!



Welcome to Skogsvana!

Here at Skogsvana we pride ourselves on providing high quality, durable leather & canvas goods, designed and made for the outdoors.

Born from a passion for the outdoors and years of experience studying the art of wilderness skills, Skogsvana continually develops innovative products to make life more comfortable in the wild.

Skogsvana operates as a tightly knit team of individuals taking inspiration from Nature, traditional design & Bushcraft practitioners/Instructors. We strive to deliver exceptional customer service, going above and beyond to ensure you receive a unique and enjoyable experience.

Skogsvana, the birth of a company born from passionate curiosity

This is Skogsvana

Since founding, Skogsvana continually strives to design and develop functional, durable equipment.

Our yearning for adventure combined with our insatiable curiosity for design paves the way for all of our products. Every single product is a process of evolution here at Skogsvana and we don’t settle for second best. Our meticulous attention to form and functionality gives rise to some of the most functional and durable gear – or at least we’d like to think so.

Selecting only the finest materials from around the world we aim to produce innovative, unique goods that perform well in their respective environments. We approach all of our projects with a needs-based outlook, trying to understand what is required of a product to fuel the design process.

But achieving this isn’t enough. How can we produce goods that do not leave a lasting negative impact our planet and environment? - By using primarily natural materials to produce goods and equipment that last longer than the user. Proudly packaged and shipped in fully recyclable packaging, Handcrafted in the UK, designed to last by Skogsvana.

Care instructions

Leather products:
All of our leather products are delivered to you fully waxed and treated. Over time, you may need to re-wax your leather products to keep them in good condition. To do this, you can use most natural wax-based products. If you need any additional help with this, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Canvas products:
All of our canvas products are made from premium, UK manufactured, cotton canvas. They are treated with high-performance, weather-proof waxes that will withstand frequent use in various outdoor environments. All canvas products can be re-waxed with canvas-specific natural waxes. If you need any additional help with this, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Which colour is the closest match to Gransfors' original leather work?

Our Hazelnut Brown leather is a very close match to the colour of the leather sheaths that Gransfors Bruks provide with their axes.
