Funkyreaders brand is trade marked. We sell European reading glasses and eyewear in the UK and worldwide. The one stop boutique for European brands
Funkyreaders was founded by Judith and Martin Cunningham who didnt want to sell boring glasses but designer european funky reading glasses. They decided to change direction in life and form Sunnyreaders Ltd (of which Funky Readers & Eye Eye Design are trading names) in 2013. Below, Judith and Martin tell the story of how they came to the business.
Funkyreaders is a UK brand and company that has been in the making for several years with the aim to sell UK and European eyewear. We have travelled extensively in Europe during that time - particularly in Italy and France - and noticed that the reading glasses of the Europeans were more trend setting and fashion conscious than those seen at home in the UK..Judith spotted a pair of velvet reading glasses in Siena, purchased them, and Funkyreaders was born. We now sell velvet reading glasses in our Doubleice range.
Funkyreaders have an idea that reading glasses in the UK should reflect the image, the look, the fashion and the personality of the wearer.
As Funkyreaders, we sourced European reading glasses such as. IZIPIZI formerly known as See-Concept, brand of Funky fashion reading glasses that are bright and exciting. We now sell them on our sister website www.eyeeyedesign.com
I Need You a German company have fabulous designer reading glasses, and sun readers from German company I Need You.
After only one year, we saw our small idea blossom into the viable funkyreaders business. We take Funkyreaders to the public during the spring and summer, travelling to major fairs at stately homes such as Chatsworth and Bleinheim Palace selling our funkyreaders range of European reading glasses
So what do we hope for 2021?
Funkyreaders' vision is to continue to bring fresh, new high-quality, fashionable reading glasses to the UK for you all to enjoy. We're hoping for continued steady growth so we can continue to concentrate on providing a 1st class service with quality products for our customers - after all, without people to wear them glasses aren't quite as Funky! Our ultimate goal this year is to create our own new range of reading glasses that will be innovative and modern.
Ciao for now !!
Martin & Judith Cunningham
