Hello, I’m Ethan Van Grunsven and I started the Sconny Company. Here’s our story!
The Sconny Company (sconnyco) was created in the summer of 21’ when I was a 19-year-old college student who aimed to create stylish Wisconsin based apparel that doesn’t represent any sports team or university. Growing up I realized that there was no way for my friends and I to represent just Wisconsin without it being tied to a sports team or university, and if there was Wisconsin based apparel it was tacky and only screen printed which deteriorated after a couple times in the wash. I wanted to create products that not only looked visually appealing but ones that felt amazing too, which is why all of our products are personally embroidered to ensure that they last you a lifetime. Designed and produced by myself, I've learned to love and embrace the hardships of producing our own products and the journey this business is taking me.
To the rest of the world, Wisconsin is that northern state where all we do is drink beer and produce dairy, but to us it’s much more than that. It’s the beautiful summer days spent boating around the lake, euphoric pink sunsets and cold winter days spent in the ice shanty; it’s home. Our home has no shortage of elegant beauty, so we thought we’d bring that same beauty to fashion to give us-the people-the ability to proudly and fashionably rep this gorgeous place.
