- John Palmgren
Stockholm-based Palmgrens was founded in 1896. The craftsmen-helmed brand began with vegetable-tanned leather goods such as saddles, bridles, and harnesses before expanding into handbags, wallets, and home office accessories. In 1950, Palmgrens launched their version of the wicker market bag—the now classic rattan bag. Framed in colorful leather, the modern design still resonates today.
