646 funkis rescue gunilla clog low black structure with black base 

HANDMADE IN SWEDEN 

NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES ON RESCUE COLLECTION 

We have put together a line of sandals using leftover leather, “rescued” from storage in our factory in Sweden. Part of the collection are made with seconds timber bases that have had a “facelift” by adding a slightly darker tint to hide any natural appearing knots and marks.

This excess stock often goes into trash, companies claim their losses and just throw away. With the amount of work, water, material, & earth that goes into producing this stock, it is a deeply flawed practise. Help save on materials and creation of waste, & make one of these sandals yours while you contribute to a less wasteful society

Sizing is still the same as our regular clogs - for low styles the bases are broad, so if you have a narrow foot we recommend you size down. For our higher bases, please size up if you have a broad foot. 

RESCUE COLLECTION

These styles are made using left over leather so please be aware these are made in very small production runs & limited stock is available. 

The rescue collection is very limited, so stock may sell out fast. These are seconds and have been reduced significantly so there is no refund or returns for these styles. 

funkis is an Australian design company based in Sydney with strong Swedish influences. Part of our range is some of the best Swedish and Scandinavian designs complemented by our own collection of clothing, shoes and accessories. 

The word Funkis is an abbreviation of the Swedish word "funktionalism" which refers to the Functionalist style developed in the early 20 century. It was not only an architectural and furniture concept, it represented a whole new movement "to change the world". Everything was to be changed, the whole society, from town planning, architecture, furniture down to the very way people lived. The world at this point had a very positive outlook on the future and the big change industrialisation could bring to not only the rich but everyone in society.

For world famous Swedish Architects like Gunnar Asplund, a lot of what he did was built on his love for the democracy. He believed that the way the cities were built in the future should benefit everyone, to give everyone "a place in the sun" (“funkis stilen som byggde Sverige” Ingrid Sommar. Forum). This thinking is the very base for “funkis Swedish forms” as a business idea.

funkis own design

The funkis ethos is based around customers who now demand style and sustainability, not only within the manufacturing process, but also within every aspect of a business. By manufacturing our clothing & jewellery in Australia, bags & shoes in Sweden, we can rely on Australia’s (and Sweden’s) industrial policies in combination with our own approach to a more sustainable business model, this way we can assure certain ethical standards are met.

Most of our design is deliberately timeless, our clogs and sandals have been part of our collection since 1996. We produce small runs to respond to demand from our customers and to create minimal wastage. We use sustainable sourced materials for our clogs and bags and end of runs fabrics for our clothing collection. Excellent quality in both design and material is essential to funkis and makes it possible for us to create a product our customers can wear for a long time.
