Her name was Anita and she was the hottest mum in all of southern Sweden in the 1970s. While smoking Camel she screamed at her kids until her curlers fell out and just looked ABBAfabulous in her white high-heeled clogs.
One summer day in 2006 Emy Blixt found the shoes Anita wore (300 pairs of red, white and black beautiful clogs from the 70s) in the basement of an abandoned clog factory in the neighboring village and brought them to Stockholm. So for all us who share the love for Anita’s wooden sandals we started Swedish Hasbeens.
Swedish Hasbeens has since developed even more new innovative shoes, bags and accessories based on strong retro trends like sustainable production, high quality materials, strong colors and great daring retro-fashion.
The Hasbeens toffels, bags and belts are based on original 70s models and are made of ecologically prepared natural grain leather since it’s the most beautiful and has the highest quality at the same time as it’s environmentally friendly.
The shoes and bags are still handmade with respect for people and the environment in the old traditional way, and in small factories that have made shoes for decades. Our production methods and material are kind to nature and people. Happy toffels make happy people.view and shop the Swedish Hasbeens AW17 collection view and shop the Swedish Hasbeens SS17 collection
