A natural curiosity feeds an eagerness to invent and develop products with flair and ingenuity. Ideas and products spring from personal needs, and often from questioning existing products' inadequate functionality. Staying away from quantity, trends and fashions, Sören’s style is that of Scandinavian functionality, quality, sensibility and longevity. Sören believes that products should enhance life, making it more comfortable, exciting and enriching.

Inspired by the age-old tradition of storing and transporting money in burlap sacks, Mr. Moneybags is a tailored bamboo-canvas cloth bag with an funnel-shaped neck (the coin slot; injection molded) and a lockable collar.
For the younger kids, there is excitement in watching the bag - which comes in all colours - change shape and grow as it gradually fills with coins and bank notes. A 'luxury' version in rich and lucious leather (white, black, etc.) is offered as a more upscale or adult oriented product. Perfect for the office of the CFO. Would she say 'no' to a bag of money ...?
