As summer vacation winds down, it’s time to stock up on back-to-school items and clothing for the upcoming year. We’ve compiled a list, from fashion to backpacks, to ensure your family starts off the school year with all the right Swedish necessities.


With summer ending, the fall wardrobe needs a refresh. H&M has all the items your children will need to start the school year in style. Check out some of our favorites from its Back to School campaign.

If your child wears a uniform to school, check out Hanna Andersson and its back-to-school uniform essentials. With more than 70 items and a variety of color options, your kid can practice self-expression within uniform guidelines.

The backpack

We’d be remiss if we didn’t include one of Sweden’s most iconic backpacks. The Kånken is a stylish, functional and safe backpack created by Fjällräven. This classic backpack originally was designed in the 1970s to spare the backs of school children. With more than 45 colors to choose from, there is bound to be one that catches your child’s eyes.

Every year, schools send home supplies lists, and every year, parents head to big department stores to stock up on pens, pencils and notebooks. Here are our top Swedish school supplies to help your child succeed in Scandinavian style.
