We hope to help people find the one thing that encourages them to get outside, try something new, or even just bring a piece of the outdoors along with them on their daily adventures in the form of one our graphic tees or handmade beanies.
Products Made in House
At Akinz, we are ALL about the process. From start to finish... starting with concept, to design, to creating screens, hand printing & lasering artwork, knitting our beanies and hand finishing each piece. Our entire team has a part in the finished product that you get to take home. We are committed to maintaining this standard - a line of clothing that is good for you and the environment, straight from our team of makers to you.
In our day-to-day operations, you can find us at our local retail shop in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado featuring our handprinted t-shirts, totes, beanies & handcrafted accessories. We also have a selection of artist goods made by other local makers.
Fort Collins, CO
Akinz is based in our flagship store in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado. We handcraft the majority of our products in the back of the shop where we sell. Come see what we're making!
We pride ourselves on our handmade beanies. The majority of our beanies are made in house on vintage knitting machines. Our staff knits, stitches & finishes each item by hand. We even make our tags in house!
In House Screen Printing
All of our t-shirts and hoodies are screen printed in-house. We love printing small batch runs, custom colors and fun in house designed graphics.
The Akinz motto is the foundation of our wings logo and is meant to encourage people to find something that motivates them to push life to the limit and reach for the sky.
The brand grew as Suzanne did. Akinz has roots as a wakeboarding brand in Texas, then a snowboarding brand in Steamboat Springs, and finally as the Akinz you see here in Fort Collins, Colorado…an active lifestyle brand that loves the outdoors, bikes, beer, the mountains & adventure.
