Beckmann of Norway
Children’s backpacks live a tough life. It is filled with heavy books and getting soaked by rain or spills, being tossed around in the schoolyard and used as a sitting pillow throughout the school year. Therefore it is important for us to tell you that every backpack from Beckmann undergo strict controls and has been thoroughly tested before it lands on your children‘s back.
Beckmann is Norway´s oldest and largest backpack brand for school children.
Beckmann’s history begins in 1946 after long years with war in occupied Norway. Olav Beckmann was a young man with a creative mind and a good idea. He starts working with different projects until he finally has enough money to continue with his idea, in the early 1950´s.
“Backpacks! The children need good backpacks for school”
The production started up in the living room at the Beckmann family’s house. They designed models, fitted, tested and sew. And backpacks were being tested on their own and the neighbourhood kids. Accuracy and quality were important values. By the start of the 70s the classic leather backpack was born, and the sales began to soar.
Beckmann of Norway is today proud to take Olav Beckmann´s business idea one step further. Every day they work to find the right materials and optimize functionality and design so that you will continue receiving the quality that you should expect from Beckmann.
The Beckmann backpacks are designed to relieve the back and shoulders from stress and pressure. The backpack feels lighter because of the hip belt, chest strap and carrying system that transfer the weight to the hips.
Beckmann is by far the largest manufacturer and distributor of backpacks to Norwegian schoolchildren, and 3 out of 4 children in elementary school are carrying a backpack from Beckmann.
The vision is to produce the best backpack for school children in the world.
