Sleek, sumptuous designs and the finest eco-conscious materials make ASK Scandinavia a standout brand in the world of sustainably made handbags. This Helsinki-based company creates timeless, design-driven handbags made with innovative materials. For its fashionista-friendly styles and sustainable approach, ASK Scandinavia has been featured in VOGUE, Harper's Bazaar, and Vanity Fair. The company donates to charities dedicating to children's well-being as well as those protecting the oceans.


Karoliina Bärlund has a  background as a distinguished fashion photographer: her portfolio includes names such as ELLE, VOGUE, L'Officiel, Another Magazine, Metal, Marimekko, L'Oreal, Nokia, and many more. It was her artistic sensibility and the life-altering experience of motherhood that inspired her to start ASK Scandinavia. Karoliina's entrepreneurial journey began when she recognized a void in the market, a lack of changing bags that fuse sophistication, elevated timeless design, and innovation. This inspired her to create a brand that embodied her responsible fashion vision.

“Our authentic commitment to innovation has enabled us to forge invaluable partnerships with industry-leading material innovation companies. These collaborations are a testament to ASK Scandinavia's position as a true pioneer in the fashion industry, continually pushing the boundaries of what's possible and setting new standards for responsible design.”


ASK Scandinavia designs are made from Natural Fiber Welding's innovative vegan leather material Mirum, which is entirely free from any petroleum-derived components. The company also works with ECONYL, a low-impact recycled nylon made from fishing waste found in the oceans. The brand's ranges are free from PU and PVC. The materials are sourced from the US and Italy.


Production takes place in Finland and Italy. ASK Scandinavia aims to start measuring emissions throughout its value chain and set goals for any circular economy improvements that can allow it to reach net zero.


The company works with local factories in the EU which have fair labour practices, and establishes trusted relationships with them. All workers are paid a living wage.


All orders are packed in recyclable paper envelopes and boxes made with recycled materials.


ASK Scandinavia is a vegan brand.
