The company Kauni was founded in 1996 on Fyn island, in Dalby, Denmark. During the first years the company mostly imported Estonian handicrafts. In the beginning Kauni redesigned the products of the Estonian knitting workshops to customize them according to the needs and traditions of the Danish market.
In 2003 the first Kauni´s knitters started their work and today Kauni sells their own design knitwear and yarns in several other countries besides Denmark.
