Founded by Jenni who lives with her husband and children. Behind the scenes, it’s very much a family affair though with Jenni’s husband doing most of the artwork for their prints in his spare time and they come up with the designs together. Their eldest came up with the idea of a skateboarding unicorn, after he couldn’t find any T-shirts in the high street shops that he liked. So they thought, why not help other families who struggle to find colourful clothes for their kids too, and Awsm Street was born. Because what could be more awesome than a rainbow unicorn skateboarding down the street!

Kids Belt Club is amazing for a number of reasons. It all started a number of years ago when founder Suzy struggled to find trousers to fit her toddlers. Suzy tried but was unable to find a solution online or in the high streets so she decided to make my own. Kids Belt Club has four products that they are really proud of and they have proven to be a practical and fun solution to the problem of oversized waistbands. Kids can choose what colours they want as each item is individual and handmade. Cementing her success, Suzy was contacted by Vogue magazine earlier this year to ask if she’d like to feature her brand in their July, August & September issues and most recently. In addition she has been awarded a Small Business Badge from Red Magazine and will be featured in their upcoming Christmas Gift Guide.
