• American Handmade for You, From Us at Akinz

    USA Made and Handcrafted, Just For You!

    We are the best friend that you have been looking for.

    We are low maintenance, do our best to make you look good and we are loyal to the end. Akinz has stayed loyal to their commitment to provide handcrafted products from the beginning. Whether it was Lindsay, Wil, Logan or Suzanne- we enjoy letting you know who made your beanies. We value quality products made by us, with love, for you.

    It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

    Look for our handmade symbol on our beanies and various accessories. These select items have been made, with fine attention to detail, by the hands of the Akinz shop crew. With the help of our vintage knitting machine in our shop, we take pride in crafting Coloradoan knitted items to keep you stylin’ and warm while boarding, biking and bar hopping. And holding true to our desire to provide high quality goods, you will still find shop employees (like Coleen below) behind the counter hand crocheting beanies and headbands for your wearing pleasure.

    You have requested that you want your Akinz gear locally sourced and we listened! Our new line of leggings are made here in the good ole’ US-of-A and select styles are stitched right in our Fort Collins store and workshop.

    Our shirts and hoodies are screen printed in-house. Take pride in reppin’ the message that you “Live to Ride. Ride to Live” and knowing that a teal haired tattooed American pressed it with love in socially responsible working conditions. Not having to outsource our products results in better prices for you!
