Here is their story-
In 1981, on a simple market stall in London’s Portobello Market, two men were selling jumpers, jeans, and handmade candles. They teamed up to form Rex International Ltd, and evolved into a wholesaler throughout the 1990s, hunting for wonders in Asia and supplying The Body Shop, Habitat, and other high street shops in the UK.
In 2003, in an effort to stand out from the crowd, the decision was made to start creating original designs and collections. The first product was the Original Jumbo Bag, which has since gone on to become a classic best-seller.
The popularity of these products continued to grow and so, in 2005, dotcomgiftshop was formed - an online-only channel that allowed us to sell directly to the public. Since then, we have continued to build a reputation as a frontrunner in British design-led giftware.
In 2018, to reflect our development from simply an online gift shop to a company renowned for its design credentials, and to better align ourselves with the wholesale arm of the business, we changed our name to Rex London.
