Slokhatt?

Jag fick en frågan om jag kunde sy en slokhatt. Som Pippi skulle sagt – Det har jag aldrig provat förut, så det klarar jag säkert!

Riktigt kul att sy men frågan är om det blir en produkt såsmåningom eller ej?

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!

Boulder brush updates

We are just done producing another batch of Bamboo boulder brushes!

We’ve made some improvements since the first version. Generally we avoid using version numbers for our products as we see it more as they evolve naturally during time.

To clarify we’ll describe the updates that the Bamboo boulder brush has gotten.

As you can see it’s the same brush and bristle with minor improvements. The current version is the more rounded one.

It's rounded! We got some feedback that the edge of the brush sometimes hit the rock when brushing. We fixed it by grinding the four corners off.

We've made the edges a bit softer to hold by sanding them of a bit. They also fit easier to a smaller chalk bag now.

That’s all for now and don’t hesitate to write to us if you have ideas!

Sten who?

Sten is a climbing brand based in Gothenburg. It started in 2013 when we released our first product – the Bamboo brush – which found it’s way to retailers and users.

We believe that the closer relations you make with factories, retailers and customers, the better products. We strive to make everything minimalistic (including life in general but that’s another story) and smart. We believe that’s better for you when using the products, the environment for saving resources and for us using less materials when producing.

Sten doesn’t own any factories. Instead we make samples, product development and limited series ourselves. Then we develop those ideas and visions together with the pros to make the products. Then we continue to refine the products. Every day – step by step.

We try to be open so if you have any questions, feedback or ideas please write to us. You find the contact information on the information page.
