The mail order business FunnyLegs
FunnyLegs was founded in 2004.
Made a virtue of necessity, one could describe the start-up phase.
While, establishing the stationary time, neither trade, nor the few online shops offered fashionable tights, Jutta Kröplin, owner of FunnyLegs, bought her leg fashion from the bargain bins of departement stores.
The foundation for an online shop that deals with real fashion for the legs was set.
This concept was loved by consumers as well as in theaters, dance groups and others.
To cover the legs with the courage and with "fashion", at the beginning was interesting only for a few customers in Germany. Much of our goods went from the beginning in all European countries, even deliveries to Saudi Arabia, Russia and Kuwait were not uncommon.
In 2007 we moved into a new warehouse near to Würzburg, as the trading business was no longer manageable with annual growth rates of 100% in the previous premises.
A TV report 2006, which dealt with FunnyLegs and fashion tights alike gave us a sales growth of almost 500%.
In 2010 there was a new move to our present location. At about 450 square meters of storage space, we stockpile now about 27,000 products from suppliers from across Europe, USA and China.
Also in 2010, FunnyLegs began with the natural production of printed tights - unique in Germany. Equipped with modern machinery, we offer our customers the opportunity tp print tights or leggings with their own designs. They are sold under the label Hotlook hosiery and wandered so far about 20,000 times over the virituellen counter and has a growing number of delighted fans.
The reason might lie in the fact that our printed hosiery in three different sizes are available, competing companies from abroad, however, produce only one size.
Tested and verified by Trusted Shops
Already in 2005, FunnyLegs was certified by Trusted Shops. The most elaborate testing procedures, where our shop is based on a comprehensive set of criteria several hundred points tested, was completed successfully and legally compliant. This procedure is repeated approximately every 2 years. You go to an always safe online purchase if you buy at FunnyLegs.
Due to the partial negative reporting on some evaluation systems that reflect what customers say only conditionally (Example) we decided to integrate the offered rating system by Trusted Shops. Since that time we have collected over 20,000 reviews. The system of Trusted Shops has however only a review of the last 365 days, so you see only the last approximately 10,000 reviews online.
All together we can be happy with our ratings and, we all are people who are doing mistakes sometime, so please don't worry.
Security of your credit card payments
Since the year 2009 FunnyLegs the credit card payment standards changed to a higher level in the security point. Verified by Visa and Mastercard Secure Code is an indication of the highest security in the handling of confidential card information.
Even the Webadressbook, an annual compilation of the most important appearing, German Internet pages, lists FunnyLegs since 2005 as one of the most important German Internet pages in the field of fashion.
Today many "Home Stores" try the same way of FunnyLegs, but fashion legwear most of them do not provide. The reason is an expensive ordering of stock capacity and not a cheap dropshipping.
High-profile leg fashion, you are therefore not only allowed but expected FunnyLegs find whatever. Fashion goods must, every year at a variety of suppliers can be ordered via pre-orders. What you find in our shop in fall, was appointed in January or February.
Please note, however, especially if those items are sold out very quickly and usually can not be reordered from the manufacturer.
Currently (2013), we work in a team of 6 employees in most modern facilities.
Jutta Kröplin, heads the company along with her husband from the start on. We are strengthened by employees in the shipping, office and programming.
Why the name FunnyLegs ?
The name FunnyLegs was invented over a glass of wine and is now registered as a trademark. We believe it is important to have a distinctive company name and not collection of search words - only to provide a shop better to search engines.
What happens next ?
For the year 2012 are already planned extensive investments. The expansion of business and storage facilities, the expansion of the machinery and the employment of additional staff is only part of it.
Together with a German manufacturer of tights and leggings, we always develop new models and orient ourselves in the market.
In the field of printed tights, we plan to use a comfortable online configurator, to make it much easier for you to print your own stocking, tights or flip-flops.
Thank you for being interested in our philosophy.
