Our Story

Living a dream and creating the most stunning handmade crayons! Learn more about The Crayon Bug below.


Founder's Story

With a background in Art & Design, and graduating with a first class honours degree in Costume Design, it was inevitable that Rebs would end up working in a visual field.

The Crayon Bug was started in the Summer of 2019 in a bid to provide plastic-free party favours for her son’s 3rd birthday party. 

​We hand make our extraordinary crayons from our workshop by the sea in coastal West Wales; with Rebs taking her inspiration from nature, science and her serious love affair with the colour wheel.


From a Mama's Perspective

The Crayon Bug is run to be eco-conscious; as a mother herself, Rebs wants to ensure we are doing everything we can to provide a happy and healthy world for our children’s future. To that end, every possible part of our process is plastic free. Our crayons are packaged in reusable & recyclable gift boxes and tubs, or natural cotton bags.

All of our crayons are held in stock ready to send which means that you don't need to be organised weeks in advance to purchase a high quality, handmade gift for a birthday or occasion. 

As The Crayon Bug has grown and evolved we understood that providing a fast turnaround would be an asset to our customers and so we have worked hard to structure the business in this way. 

Rebs's natural flair for creativity and art have lead to her designing some truly unique crayon sets which can be found here in The Crayon Bug Originals  section.
