Keswick Co-Tribe Bosses

Meet Amy and Louise.

They are the founders of Ruby and Bean, designers and creators of hand printed, unisex clothing for all the family.

Ruby and Bean was the result of many, many Whatsapp conversations between two mamas and a dream that happened quite unexpectedly!​

Founded by Amy and Louise, two creative types who needed an extra bit of income to support their studio dreams, Ruby and Bean has grown into its own fully fledged business that keeps going from strength to strength thanks to some of the best and most supportive customers.

Amy, with a BA hons in fashion, has had her own children’s clothing range since 2013. Following the birth of her first child, who came seven weeks early, she need the flexibility to be at home rather than in a “9-5” which restricted the time she could take off to be with her son.

Louise was a primary teacher for 12 years and found that the demands of the job, a 4 year old and a farmer husband were a little bit too much, so something had to give!

Joining forces has meant more flexibility to work around families, and still have the creative outlet needed to be nice people!
