Happy holidays!

For 2017 I had two main goals. I wanted to finish the Senders hat and I also wanted to adjust the long term vision for Sten.

The hat (of course) turned out to be much harder than I thought. Sewing one is hard but making a product that’s possible to produce is harder. All seams have to be optimised, there are surprisingly hard decisions ta make (e.g. velcro, button or some other closing system) and the blueprint has to be adjusted to fit other than myself. It has been a steep and roller coaster like learning process. I think I’m happy with how the hat turned out now and some more hats are on it’s way out for testing.

For the long term vision I wanted to make the brand even more local. Change the goals, from having some distant idea of making a living from it, to making good products and having fun while doing so. I also like to be more transparent about the brand and to work even harder on making it friendly to the environment (e.g. replace the last small bits of the non nature materials). I’m not there yet – the work will surely continue during 2018 and we’ll see in a year :)

Both brushes and buckets can be ordered now to get before christmas!

We – the ambassadors team and I – want to wish you a happy holidays and we really hope that 2018 will be your best climbing year ever!

Boulder bags in stock again!

We’ve had the luxury problem of needing to restock too quickly :) And today it’s done! We have another batch of 32 bags for delivery!

Contact via our web site, Facebook or order via our online store!

We are working on opening the store for all EU countries. For now send us an e-mail if you are ordering from outside Sweden.

The inspiration picture (above) is from the beautiful Swedish west coast (archipelago) that also happens to be a boulder paradise. Imagine climbing slabs in the warm summer nights when the sun sets over the sea… I miss it as soon as I’m leaving. Luckily it’s not more than an hour away from central Gothenburg.

Another Sten-brush found?!

Believe it or not but this Sunday Fredrik found another Sten brush! Just below the boulder Sockerbiten in Utby. We asked all climbers passing bye but none recognised it. Anyone else missing a brush?

Are the Sten brushes that easy to loose? Should I add a string to them? If you’ve missed the finding of the first brush read it as well :)

Sten brush searching for owner!

Last weekend a lost Sten boulder brush was found on the Swedish west coast. On a small island called Hönö (chicken island in Swedish). It lay on the beach washed ashore with all the debris from this winter storms.

We have asked around to find it’s rightful owners but none are found. If you are missing your brush write a comment below and tell us where you think you’ve lost it.

We started to plot some potential climbing locations from where it can have traveled through the sea. Please help us share so it can find it’s way back to home!

Here is how it looks :)

Happy new year!

2014, our first year, has come to an end. It has been a great experience and we’ve learned a lot. We are working (baby steps at all times :)) with both new products and improvements to existing. You will see sometimes soon. But first yoga, climbing, snorkeling and exploring in the beautiful Thailand!

Thanks a lot to all of you for helping us getting it working! And happy new year!

Happy sending! Sat nam!
