FiFO Cycle was founded in Brooklyn in 2007 with a mission to make unique and functional accessories for cycling.   Today FiFO is still based in Red Hook, but moves around the world, looking for unique and sustainable ways to make products using traditional techniques and local materials. 

At FiFO we consider that when someone buys a product, they should want know everything about it.  The design should provoke questions about where it came from, who made it and how far it has traveled.  These are important questions.

And so, by prudently sourcing materials, refining patterns, and expanding techniques to improve functionality, the style will take care of itself.

Growing up in Ireland, FiFO founder Fiona Ryan developed an appreciation for natural materials and a respect for the traditional crafts that were passed down through word of mouth.  The idea that families can be supported by a cottage industry and in turn support their local community is still alive and well in many parts of the world.  This pursuit must be honored and supported to keep tradition alive in the face of global manufacturing.

FiFO sees their designs embarking on new adventures where they become essential, long-lasting, timeless pieces to be treasured and enjoyed.
