Hand made in the north of England
We're proud to say all our custom beanies and seasonal collections are hand made for you in the northeast of England by this group of wonderful women. Our knitters have decades of experience behind the needles and have all been working for Funi since the beginning.
Our summers are spent sketching, designing, making samples, knitting stock and posing for inappropriate photos. But now that winter has landed we're busy with the custom beanies. When you design your hat online the order goes straight to one of these ladies who crack on and get knitting. Each has their own speciality, for example, Clair is great at pattern-making and Marilynne is an admin wizz. Doreen likes gin and a laugh, Joan is never at home - seems to be on holiday an awful lot - and Helen is the perfect all-rounder, always there to pick up the slack. Between them they are the perfect employees and the heart of Funi.
Incidentally, we may be looking for more knitters so let us know if you're interested in working with Funi.
