ASK Scandinavia

ASK Scandinavia is a Finnish clothing brand founded in 2017. ASK Scandinavia offers bags and accessories to make everyday life easier for its customers and bring beauty to it. The combination of Scandinavian design and European materials is designed to withstand both time and use. All ASK products are manufactured in a family business in Bulgaria.

The name ASK is an abbreviation of the names of the three founders; Antonia, Sonia, and Karoliina. Their passion is to create practical and honest products that withstand the demands of time, different genders, and seasons. New products in each collection must be compatible with previous collections.

Vision ASK Scandinavia was born after two of the founders had children. Both had a hard time finding a stylish diaper bag on the market, so with the principles of sustainability in mind, they began looking for quilted Italian nylon that later became their trademark in the world.

Once the material was found, it felt stylish and easy to care for. Shortly thereafter, the first products saw the daylight. It was important for the founders to design a bag that suits the urban lifestyle for people who appreciate simple elegance and sporty nuances. The bag had to be light to carry, spacious, and easily combined with different outfits.
