About Rebekah Scott:
I have loved designing and creating things since I was four years old and started out using Kleenex and a stapler to make clothing and accessories for my Barbie until my mom taught me to sew. Fast forward a few years and I was selling fleece hats I had made on the playground. Then in 2003, I launched Rebekah Scott Designs, a handmade purse and accessory business based in my home state of South Dakota.
When we first got married, my husband and I worked really hard to become debt free using the Dave Ramsey program because we both knew I wanted to stay at home to raise our kids. Since we were on a budget, I got creative one Christmas by cutting and sewing my adorable living room curtains into purses and when orders started rolling in, I realized how I could use my talents AND earn an income, all from the comfort of my home with my babies by my side! After I got the thumbs up from Nicholas, I launched Rebekah Scott Designs and stayed up until 2 am that first night, humming and thanking God for the opportunity to see my vision come true!
While I LOVE choosing fabric combinations and coming up with new styles, I get great joy helping other women find confidence in whatever stage of life she is in. If she’s heading off to college, I want her to walk on campus knowing she’s got what it takes to ace her classes! If she’s bringing home her first (or second or third!) baby from the hospital, I want her to know she has everything she needs to comfort and care for her baby (AND herself)! If she’s walking into the office, I want her to throw her shoulders back knowing she is organized, stylish, and is going to knock this presentation out of the park!
I understand what it is like to search for a bag that doesn’t seem to exist, leaving you no option but to yield to the powers of conformity. I created Rebekah Scott Designs to help people express themselves, break free from conformity, and finally have the perfect bag, purse and accessories that fits their lifestyle and displays who they truly are!
Rebekah Scott Designs is a federally trademarked brand with an exclusive website that allows YOU to design your own purse and accessories to reflect your personal style, keep you organized, and give you confidence for whatever life throws as you! My staff and I LOVE seeing what you create!
My mission is to inspire creativity and confidence to people all over the world.
