Custom beanies and knitwear

Funi is an ethical custom knitwear company with a soul. Everything we create comes from years of experience behind the needles and a deep seated commitment to doing things a little bit differently. 

Funi beanies are brought to you with as much care for the environment and their workers as possibleIf you want to design your own beanie or choose from our ready-made knitted hats, you can trust that every bobble hat and bit of knitwear comes with our 'Respect and Protect' seal. Whether it's using recycled yarns, vegetable ink in our printers or British granny power instead cheap foreign labour - we try to make sure every item comes to you with as much consideration for our scene and for other people. From our seasonal collections of statement scarves and beanies to our 'create your own' headwear, we've got it covered. Established in 2008, our main priority is to bring you top notch gear that you'll love, but in doing so we didn't want to compromise on our morals. So have a browse, buy a beanie and enjoy.

Sponsored riders and skiers

Yes yes... it's already January and we've only just got around to adding this season's Funi riders to the site. But have you ever chased 13 teenagers who are dotted all over the UK and the Alps for anything? Send in photos... send in a blurb... what's your address...? It was easier to put the whole website together than that one page! Anyway... I digress. 

We're super stoked to have these over-talented skiers and boarders representing Funi. Each and every one of them work hard to have the skills they do, so any vague leg-up we can give them is a bonus. Keep checking our FB page and Instagram for updates on how they're all getting on. 

Maisie, Vaila and Molly - the 3 UK teenagers are coming up fast through the GB ranks and are all set to be huge in the coming years. We can't wait to see how they progress, with each of them training hard throughout both winter and summer. Kyle is the latest signing on the male side and having spent the last few weeks in Breckenridge his trick list is now never-ending.

And last but not least - as we started this company out in France whilst doing seasons - it wouldn't feel right to exclude any of the amazing talent from our French friends. This stella group of lads are scattered about the French Alps from Tignes to Morzine. Watch out in the parks.
