Made with love by two people in love
Rustic Hustle is a lifestyle brand and family business run by Woodworker, Kyryl and Graphic Designer, Leigh. Together they create original and handmade, custom home decor, gifts and wedding products and blog about their journey to merge their millennial lifestyle with a more rustic, antiquated way of life in the country. They also supply retailers with handmade wholesale products and offer exterior historical building signage for small business.
Our business made our DIY wedding dreams come true
Our customers have shared their moments with us through their custom purchases.
Now we’re sharing what those purchases made possible for us…
“As a woodworker and graphic designer couple, we created Rustic Hustle in 2016 to fund our 2018 wedding. Since launch, we've provided quality handmade, wooden products and custom gifts to countless families commemorating the meaningful moments of their lives. We've been honoured to be a small part of our customers' moments and we genuinely thank them for the ways they have been a part of ours.”
Kyryl is a formally trained chef and handyman and Leigh is a Graphic Designer and DIY enthusiast which put them in a unique position to create their own wedding from scratch.
“We wanted to prove to ourselves that we could do this under budget and to a high degree of skill. We didn’t pigeon-hole ourselves into doing what was traditional. We made our own traditions and worked towards providing our guests with a transformative and whimsical party experience.”
Having now successfully achieved those wedding goals, including everything from catering and decorating it themselves, they now plan to share their experience on their blog ‘High Country’ in the coming months including the following…
Creating your own wedding traditions | Making your own floral arrangements | A flower crown fit for a princess | Our total wedding boat refurbishment | Decorating your wedding automobile | Custom signage for your event | Making your own veil or cape | How two carports saved us on renting a tent | How a Groom catered his own wedding | Make your own wedding bar for under $50 | Making your own grass wall photo backdrop | Anticipating guests needs before they do and more!
Leigh is an Honours Graduate of the York University & Sheridan College Joint Program in Design. She previously worked as a graphic designer for large companies for over 7 years years before branching out on her own. She enjoys every waking minute of creating beautifully hand-crafted things for peoples homes, cottages, weddings or even rustic branding pieces for retail clients.
"Kyryl is so light-hearted and always makes me laugh when we're overwhelmed with orders. He's an incredibly hard worker and dedicated to quality. We couldn't do what we do without each others' specific skill sets and a mutual commitment to this business and each other. He's the most generous person I know... with his time and his skills. He's always ready to help others."
Kyryl is a skilled craftsman and woodworker with a passion for creating rustic furniture and home decor. He's worked in a variety of different trades and has a passion for learning new things and making beautiful home goods including large furniture pieces. His background in laying high-quality, ultra-rare wood flooring and his millwright experience have been invaluable assets.
"Leigh is my muse and my inspiration. She tells me what we're going to make and what to do and apparently she's always right. She's definitely the more creative out of the two of us and her ability to visualize new products and build our brand is a huge part of our success. I'm always surprised by the new ideas she has."
