History
  It
 all
 started
 bit
 by
 bit,
 as
 many
 others;
 doing
 a
 t-­‐shirt
 line
 and
 evolving
 into
 broader
 collections.
  From
 Music
 festivals
 to
 catwalks
 and
 international
 trade
 fairs
 while
 doing
 a
 door
 to
 door
 sales
  work.
 Having
 started
 in
 close
 contact
 with
 our
 customers
 and
 consumers
 has
 always
 pushed
 us
 to
  remain
 commercial
 yet
 keeping
 our
 initial
 idea
 of
 doing
 something
 fresh,
 fun,
 funky
 and
  affordable
 at
 the
 same
 time.
 SKUNKFUNK
 collection
 had
 around
 25
 styles
 and
 sold
 four
 thousand
  pieces.
 Key
 idea
 was
 to
 expand
 the
 brand
 wherever
 possible
 and
 our
 style
 caught
 up
 in
 many
  different
 countries.It's
 the
 people
 themselves
 that
 reinvent
 SKUNKFUNK.
 
 

 

We are committed to increasing the use of sustainable fibers in our collections Sustainability is also about creating collections that endure different trends, to make goods that you use in different occasions and in different ways We exclusively use bio plastics for polybags, and are committed to reusing and recycling all of our paper and cardboards Over 95% of our products are transported by sea to reduce our carbon footprint

Sustainability
 is
 also
 about
 creating
 collections
 that
 endure
 different
 trends,
 to
 make
 goods
 that
  you
 use
 in
 different
 occasions
 and
 in
 different
 ways

We strive to bring new ideas, to create networks and opportunities to new talents working towards Sustainability   Doing
 Our
 Bit
  Skunkfunk
 strongly
 believes
 fashion
 and
 environmental
 and
 social
 concerns
 should
 go
 hand-­‐in-­‐ hand.
 Our
 website
 is
 a
 perfect
 channel
 to
 start
 sharing
 our
 experience
 on
 this
 journey
 towards
  sustainability:
 not
 just
 explain
 our
 history
 but
 also
 to
 share
 our
 latest
 milestones,
 the
 stones
 on
  the
 road
 and
 the
 direction
 we
 are
 taking.
 From
 the
 design
 rooms
 to
 fabric
 sourcing,
 logistics
 and
  own
 operations,
 Skunkfunk
 is
 working
 hard
 in
 order
 to
 switch
 the
 negative
 impacts
 for
 positive
  ones
 in
 all
 three
 legs:
 people,
 planet
 and
 prosperity.
 
 
  Skunkfunk environmentally preferred fibers
 

RECYCLED POLYESTER Polyester comes from crude oil, a natural scarce resource with a low renewability ratio. Recycled polyester is processed in a less energy intensive way than creating virgin fibers and it’s a perfect option to give a second life to post-industrial remains or post-consumer plastic waste. The PET to be recycled is chopped, melted and pulled into a new textile fiber that may have the same quality as the virgin polyester it comes from.

ORGANIC COTTON A natural fiber cultivated without any synthetic chemical input, such as pesticides or fertilizers, and no genetic modification. This cotton is grown taking care of both soil and biodiversity, turning out a perfect bio-ecological balance for the land and the people in the area. LYOCELL This fiber represents a milestone in the development of environmentally sustainable textiles. Lyocell is a regenerated cellulosic fiber that comes from eucalyptus wood pulp, being extracted under a sustainable closed-loop process economical in its use of energy. The result: a great quality of light and silky fibers, also originally biodegradable.  ...
