Daniel Ankarstrand


Daniel Ankarstrand is a craftsman, but this wasn’t always the case. He spent years as a family therapist, and it was only after his mother-in-law bought him an unattractive iPad cover that the fashion-conscious craftsman resolved to make a better one himself. After reading and studying every video on the internet – as well as hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches – he scaled up his self-taught hobby and in 2016 launched his brand “Sibirien Stockholm”. Not only does this satisfy his aesthetic calling, but it is also environmentally conscious. He uses salmon skins, a waste product from the Norwegian fishing industry, as a form of leather. Rather than considering salmon skin to be a substitute for luxury leather, Daniel is adamant that it is far more luxurious and exotic.
