The Funky Iron is an electric steam iron, with a catchy design that is supposed to make ironing fun again. Lets be honest lads we dont like ironing do we? Can this change your mindset…..
The founder Joe and Sadie Sillett want to address the bigger question: Can we revive this traditional houseman skill – can we possibly even make ironing sexy? Will the ‘funky‘ look motivate millennials to pick up the old-fashioned skill and learn how to iron themselves? And will husbands finally help out their wives? After all, ironing CAN be fun!
After its highly successful first round of funding in March 2017, The Funky Iron Company has launched its Round 2 Funding campaign on Europe’s leading crowdfunding platform Seedrs opening its doors to both new and existing investors. The Round 1 Funding overfunded to 138%.
For its Round 2 Funding, the company is seeking £150,000 and founders Sadie & Joe Sillett say…

“Our Eureka moment came when realising that, of all the main household goods in the market, the iron was a product crying out to be re-designed and the category challenged with style and colour,“ say the founders Joe & Sadie Sillett. “So far it has been a great journey, we are looking forward to welcoming new investors on board.”

The Funky Iron Company is planning to launch its debut range in February 2018 and is currently talking to both online and traditional retail partners. It will also sell direct to the public via its own website www.thefunkyironcompany.com
