A Rum Fellow is our Supplier of the Week, 10 – 16 October.
Founded on 3 main principals - Design, Quality and Integrity - the name "A Rum Fellow" is grabbing attention from all angles. From their ethical manufacture and work with local communities to the vibrant patterns that are created, the brand certainly has a story to tell.
