Så glad att kritpåsen hittat rätt igen! Trevligt sändande!

Repost from @herrsorbrand … This used to be my old climbing jeans. Now, thanks to @stenclimbing , it’s a really nice crafted chalkbag. My first impression are satisfying, lightweight, easy functions and don’t leak chalk! 📷 from yesterdays evening climbing in expected colder temps. My skin didn’t like +20 degrees.

A huge bonus with making ba…

A huge bonus with making bags and hats is that I’ve really learned to sew.
Fixing broken things quick and good looking feels good. Yesterday my daughter’s winter hat, this past weekend @herrmister broken bike bag. On a sewing machine from the 50s that I’ve also restored :) Recommend you all to learn!
Have a fantastic weekend and hope you’ll be happy sending / mending!

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.

Sten boulder bag!

A bag to keep your chalk in when bouldering. Made by reused denim in Sweden.

I’ve been working so hard for this and finally the Sten boulder bag is DONE! A boulder bag made by old denim jeans, waxed with bees wax and paraffin to keep dirt out and the chalk in. It’s hand made in Sweden.

We believe in reuse. The jeans on the picture here is a pair that I inherited from a friend 17 years ago. You can send your old worn out favorite jeans to me and I’ll make them into a bag. If you are interested in that please contact me. Of course you can also have me select the fabric for you. We’ll probably have other materials available later as well. If you have any preferences in color, wash or fabrics please let me know. We are not totally done with the pricing yet but are guessing on 500 SEK including one Sten boulder brush.

The bags are made by hand in our own studio in Sweden and we are really proud to make that work. Making our own products is new to us so expect delivery times to be a couple of weeks. We’ll work on that and learn to be more efficient as we go, please bear with us for now.

Sewing the boulder bag was meant to be the first product for Sten. I mean, how hard can it be? Really hard, as it turned out. Luckily the boulder brush was easier. When I started I didn’t know anything about making patterns or producing. It has been a steep learning curve and my attempts have been like a roller coaster. One day I felt like a genius, the next not so much.

Many people have helped make this product possible. Thanks to all you. A special extra mega warmest thanks goes to Sofia, Johanna, Fredrik, Mikaela, Dagny, Ea and Padde. You are the best!

Happy sending!

P.S. We are glad for all feedback so please share with us!

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!
