Funky Buddha – being the flagship brand – is part of a portfolio of retail brands that are developed by our company ALTEX SA, based in Greece – Europe.
ALTEX S.A. is a family-owned European fashion retailer that designs, produces and distributes fashion products with a distinctive character, standing clearly out from the crowd.
Driven by passion, determination and intuition, the company creates clothes that are “canvasses of expression” and give consumers the ability to be themselves, feel good and stand out from the crowd. Garments of the highest quality, comfortable and highly affordable, that match each person, expressing his or her personality.
The company’s portfolio consists of two brands: Funky Buddha & Fifty Five Garage offer
dynamic, comfortable, uplifting and expressive lifestyle clothes for men and women, paying extreme attention to quality and details reflecting sheer enthusiasm, freedom of expression and a unique differentiation in style that all those who feel authentic, creative, daring and confident are looking for!
Each fashion collection is an expression and a way of life for all of those who don’t just follow fashion but think of it as a mean of expression. This is one of the cornerstones of the company’s philosophy, inspiring both the company and the consumers alike.
Each fashion collection is daring, influenced by music, arts & culture, intense feelings, travelling, love for the environment with a contemporary still classy look and feel, being part of a total “canvas” and a modern way of interaction and expression. Every season, the company designs clothes full of innovative ideas, by enriching the latest trends.
Funky Buddha brand was founded in 2003 through the passion and intuition of Alexiou family from Europe - Greece.
What started off as a casual business trip for them, turned into an epic adventure through the highs and lows 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! The rising sun flag 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 ones personality and make you feel cool at ease. The brand was launched during the summer of 2003 and its tees and cargo shorts became directly a hit, surpassing expectations and setting the standards for further expansion of the brand. In just a few years, with hard work and determination, and with the collection becoming richer and more complete the commercial success of the European fashion company took off. Funky Buddha has become - in a short period of time – an international fashion Retailer and the cult fashion brand for those who love to wear clothes inspired by values such as freedom, respect for the individual and respect for the environment.
