Our Story

‘For babies with style’

This is my son. Funky Giraffe came into being a year after he was born. You could say it’s all down to him!

I loved dressing my son up – it was our thing (well, mine at any rate). My son was bursting with fun, joy and character. Like any other parent, I thought he was the most special person in the universe and I wanted his clothes to reflect this, not just to fit him. Many of the baby clothes on offer were poor quality and had no character, so making clothes and accessories for him was an obvious thing to do. It helps that I love clothes and fashion and that I’ve always worked in the fashion industry.

Parents always want to know where this item of clothing or this piece of kit came from, and soon my friends were wanting me to make their children some of the clothes my son wore. After a while they insisted that they should buy them from me.

And that’s how Funky Giraffe came about.

The idea behind Funky Giraffe is that dressing your child should be a pleasure and not a chore. I provide the knowledge of textile quality, our team of inspired designers provides an exciting range of products, we price them sensibly – and you get what every customer dreams about: real style, top quality, excellent value.

We love our customers. We talk with them on social media, we love to meet them, and we ask every one of them to fill out a survey so we can be sure that our service and products are the best we can make them. All this feedback is there for customers to read. We know that customers make companies – and we intend to keep hold of our customers by giving them a service they won’t find anywhere else.

Now my daughter is also in Funky Giraffe bibs, and I am loving making new designs for girls and dressing up my daughter.
