about rustic rascal

I'm Rach, 30, from the Scottish Borders and I'm addicted to designing and crafting! Rustic Rascal was born in 2018 after creating my own wedding stationery. I made the scary decision to pack in my full time, soul destroying job as a debt chaser and turn my hobby into a career, and thanks to people like you supporting my wee biz, I've never looked back!

I'm passionate about shopping small, supporting local businesses, and about providing an eco-friendly service. The products you buy from me are always either recyclable, are made from recycled, FSC certified or bio-degradable materials. Rustic Rascal was recently awarded Highly Commended for the most sustainable brand in the UK Craft Business Awards. You can learn more about my Planet Promise here

Fuelled on coffee and cakes, I run Rustic Rascal full time in Galashiels, Scottish Borders with my furry fren Snicker who keeps me off my bum in between your orders. So far your support has enabled me to move out of my house and into a premises, secure a number of local stockists and also invest in exciting new machinery. I have over 2K Etsy sales and a 5 star rating across Etsy and Facebook. The focus for 2021 has been to develop my graphic design skills and expand my eco small business packaging products. I'm thankful for every single order I get, whether its for £3 or £300, because without each and every customer I wouldn't be able to chase my dream.

Thanks for stopping by, you're an angel.

Keep shopping small!
