2014, here we come!

Dear åsakapop likers. I want to thank you all for 2013, the year when åsakapop saw it’s light and actually became a brand. Thanks for your support, both of åsakapop and the eco-thinking. The goal was to sell the first scarf during 2013, but now already, the 2nd collection is released and 100s of åsakapopers are walking around out there. 2014, we will continue with our focus, creativity, passion and sustainability. Hope you will join!

Love from Lena, designer, founder and CEO

These are the first samples that I received. Proudly wearing the first åsakapopscarfs and trying all the different ways to tie them, selfies are the only way to document, and well it’s the word of 2013, so why not.
