Swedish Hasbeens: Retro-inspired

15.10.2012 / PRODUCTS

Founded in 2008, Swedish Hasbeens, as the name suggests, is a Swedish retro-inspired brand. It has been adopted by celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, who has given the label a high profile and turned these quirky shoes and bags into must have accessories. This new brand is for laid back individuals, who prefer unique style as opposed to following trends. Their aim of the brand is to emulate the old fashioned popular styles of the 70’s and turns them into exciting new designs for the new millennium. The products all come in a great range of diverse colours. Swedish Hasbeens recycle, use ecological materials and are hand crafted using environmentally techniques. What more of a brand can you expect? Now at YOUR!

Bringing the 70s back.

Swedish Hasbeens shoes are hand-made using the same craftsmanship as in the the 70s which is kind to people and nature. The manufacturers use natural materials and you could pretty much bury your shoes in your garden. Like all hand-made stuff using natural materials every pair will be unique which is a sign of quality. So don’t worry if the wood varies in color and if there are twigs in it. Natural grain leather may also have marks and may vary in color and thickness. The untreated natural colored leather will darken with time. The colored leather, like black, might rub off on other light stuff. The color on the painted wooden sole and the rubber sole will wear off in a natural way with time, and that’s what these beauties are all about.

Hand-made stuff with natural materials just makes you more unique… which is really great…if you like being unique that is…

Swedish Hasbeens: Happy toffels make happy people.

12.04.2011 / PRODUCTS
Her name was Anita and she was the hottest mum in all of southern Sweden in the 1970’s. While smoking Camel she screamed at her kids until her curlers fell out and just looked fabulous in her white high-heeled clogs.

One summer day in 2006 we found the shoes she wore (300 pairs of red, white and black beautiful clogs from the 70’s) in the basement of an old clog factory in the neighboring village and brought them to Stockholm. So for all these people that shared our love for Anita’s wooden shoes and for ourselves we started Swedish Hasbeens.

Our ambition is to continue to release more incoherent and fun shoes and stuff inspired by Hasbeens that once ruled the planet.

The Hasbeens toffels, bags and belts are based on original 70’s models and are made of ecologically prepared natural grain leather since it’s the most beautiful and the highest quality at the same time as it’s environmentally friendly.

They are still handmade with respect for people and the environment in the old traditional way, and in small factories that have made shoes for decades. Our production methods and material are kind to nature and people. Happy toffels make happy people.
