Rundestiny now calls Manchester home, but the story begins over 3000 miles away in Sierra Leone. Rundestiny’s founders were born in Sierra Leone West Africa where they drew on their African heritage and that of each of their mothers, who first sowed the seed of working with African fabric and cloth. One began small, unpicking cloth when asked until that seed grew into something bigger. The other watched on as her mother practised the ancient art form of Batik, a method of African wax printing. Their African heritage is now aptly woven with influences from years in Europe and is what makes Rundestiny so unique.
Here at Rundestiny, we firmly believe that everyone, no matter where you come from or who you are, is lovely and unique. Everything we create is with this in mind, in our product collection, we personalised gifts by the occasion, which is why our products are so personal to each customer. Every day we get to create things that will resonate with many different people and cultures. It’s why we do what we do.
The inspiration for our name was a quote from the author T. D. Jakes. He speaks of running after your destiny, of chasing your dreams, something that resonated strongly with our founders.
