About Bookman


 Some years ago a group of 5 friends all with different skill sets, came together over a mutual passion for cycling. Living in Stockholm, a very bicycle-orientated city, cycling is their main form of transport and they believe it is absolutely the best way to get around the city (and beat traffic). In amongst their comings and goings they saw a need for urban bike accessories with a twist so they decided to combine function with style and design and create Bookman. Their inspiration comes from the humming bike life they see in urban Europe where it is evident that getting on a bike is not reason enough to disregard dressing well. Their goal is to inspire more of you style-conscious people to see that traveling in the saddle can be a way of life that combines style, convenience, design and fun.

They at Bookman are continuously striving to design more functional solutions for your everyday cycling needs, focusing on the little details that have previously been overlooked and incorporating cycling and style in all their products. They aim to provide you with an ever-expanding range of different products to add a personal touch on your ride while keeping you safe.

They are featured in over 30 stores all around the world from concept boutiques such as Colette in Paris, to museum shops like MoMA in NYC, to more bicycle oriented stores such as ParkSIDER in Tokyo. You can also browse and buy their products right now from exactly where you are, through their online store (link to the store). They have also appeared in some cool media forums around the globe; American men’s magazine Details, Velo’s 2nd gear book, British GQ, The Sunday Times Style, Nordic architecture and design magazine FORM, The Cool Hunter and on WIRED’s website, just to name a few.
