Funkita About

ABOUT

From Funkita HQ in Melbourne, Australia, we pack as much style and creativity into every piece of our swimwear, activewear, clothing and accessories as we can. Whether you’re in the water or on the land, it’s our mission to ensure our bold, colourful prints keep you inspired day in and day out, and our long-lasting, comfy styles keep you moving, even through your most challenging workout. We’re the brand we want you to trust and love, from the quality of our products to our support of rising athletes and the community around us. For us, Funkita is a journey and we’d love you to take us on yours.  

GROWING UP

Designed by athletes, for athletes, Funkita launched in 2004 with the aim to deck swimmers out in an awesome range of comfortable and colourful chlorine resistant swimwear that stays on and keeps everything in the right places. On the bums of swimmers, triathletes, divers and surf lifesavers, Funkita took off as the brand to dive in, streamline, catch waves, somersault, chase seagulls and of course just get wet in! Made from C-Infinity, a premium Italian polyester fabric exclusive to Funkita, our colours won’t fade and our swimwear won’t lose its shape even after hours in chlorinated water or under the sun.

Since our early days, we’ve added kickboards, pull buoys, goggles, swim caps, mesh bags, backpacks and towels to the Funkita swim range so that every time you hit the water, we’ve got you covered.

In 2016, Funkita released its first FINA-approved performance suit. Using body moulding technology on elite athletes and hours of testing under race pace conditions, the APEX Stealth was developed to provide the most streamline, form fitting performance suit on the market. With gridlocking fabric technology to provide maximum compression and rigid carbon core stabilisers, the Stealth offers incredible body position on the water and minimal resistance through the water. Ongoing development ensures new suits are being constantly tested and refined by the Funky Lab (FLAB) team ready for future deployment.

As Funkita has grown, our mission has expanded and we leapt from the water to brighten up your gym and dry land training with our Funkita Fit range of colourful and comfortable activewear styles. Funkita Fit is designed for athletes to train in, not just for Saturday coffee. Made from premium fabrics to ensure maximum compression and movement with breathability and moisture wicking properties, it’s a high performance product, without the high price tag.   

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Whether you’re an Olympic athlete or an everyday athlete with Olympic sized dreams, Funkita is committed to providing athletes with products that will survive the hardest session. We understand for every moment of exhilaration, there are thousands of laps, turns, starts, jumps and steps to get there. In every product we make a commitment to maximise the quality of our inputs while maintaining the most affordable price. We’re not the cheapest product on the market because we pay for the highest quality inputs and maintain strict manufacturing standards, but we’re not the most expensive either because we don’t invest in extravagant marketing campaigns that in the end, are paid for by the customer.

So we’re excited you’ve discovered Funkita and we hope you decide to make us a part of your journey.
