Swifty Scooters is a family business founded by husband and wife team Jason and Camilla Iftakhar. They met whilst studying at the Royal College of Art, both graduating in 2005.
Based in Manchester, Camilla and Jason have endeavoured to source local. Swifty One is designed and hand made in Manchester, and carefully assembled by Jason in the Swifty Scooters workshop in Salford.
Product designer Jason Iftakhar is the original creator of the folding scooter, Swifty One. He first showed an early prototype of the scooter at 100% Design London 2009 under Jamily Design Studio, having built the working prototype by hand. Carving his career path in eco design, his passion for sustainable products and the great outdoors is the very foundation of Swifty Scooters.
Fashion designer Camilla Iftakhar takes the role of Swifty Scooters Director of Accessories and Apparel. Camilla’s background is in designing sports and lifestyle apparel for leading sportswear companies such as Puma, Umbro and Mountain Equipment.
