We are a small business run by a Mummy & Daddy in Whitley Bay that dream of employing young adults with learning disabilities. Read our story to find out more.
Rusks & Rebels began with the simple idea of creating cool, funky t-shirts for our two rebels Dylan & Cameron. After months of sketching out ideas, we realised we needed to take the plunge and start the dream of having our own business. We had the potential to create fab kids and baby clothing including a really fun personalised range!
When Rusks & Rebels was born in 2011 we were motivated by the possibility of it leading to future employment for our 14 year old son Dylan, who has Williams Syndrome. The Syndrome effects all areas of Dylan's development. His lack of development promises for an uncertain future in terms of employment. As Rusks & Rebels has developed from an idea into reality, our motivation to provide future security and paid employment for Dylan has evolved into a dream to be able to offer paid employment opportunities for not just Dylan but for many adults that are living with learning and developmental difficulties.

A little bit about our Ethically made clothing.
At Rusks & Rebels we love the world around us and care immensely for our environment. We are committed to do everything we can to improve, reduce, re-cycle and re-use throughout our company. To us, Well Made Clothing is about having the best possible design, materials and details on a piece of clothing that will be cherished for years. It’s about getting that perfect feel and fit. It’s about recognising that there’s a lifecycle for every garment we make and that each part of that garment’s journey.
It is all about using the processes of manufacturing cotton-based garments to have a positive impact on the communities and on the environment in which we work. Crop care, water management and fair wages in Tanzania and Pakistan as well as creating awesome products for your kids!
We pride ourselves on both our customer service and the quality finish of our clothing.
