The Funky Buddha brand was founded in 2003 through the passion and intuition of a team of three friends and young entrepreneurs from Greece. What started off as a casual business trip for them, turned into an epic adventure through the high’s and low’s of the far east. Seeking initially to research business opportunities, a delay at a local train station resulted in a major detour. They returned from it with crates and stories!
A travelling elephant with a rider under an umbrella on top of it became the brand’s symbol and an inspiration for what has become a highly successful idea: to make great garments that suit every individual, reflect one's personality and make you feel at ease. The brand was launched during summer 2003 and its tees and cargo shorts became directly a hit. In just a few short years and with the collection becoming richer and more complete the commercial success of the Greek company took off.
Funky Buddha has become in a short period of time the cult brand for those who love to wear clothes inspired by values such as freedom, respect for the individual and respect for the environment. It currently opened its first own shop and holds more than 300 points of sale in the Greek market. In 2010 the brand was also distributed to Spain and the Netherlands, through agents and distributors who saw the potential at their first international meetings with the brand at CPD Signatures Fair in Dusseldorf, and the BRANDERY Fair in Barcelona. Every season Funky Buddha creates a wardrobe brimming with ideas, in tune with the latest trends and inspired by its values.
