Coastal Crab CT
In this spotlight we'll look at Coastal Crab CT, a local CT clothing company based along the southeastern shoreline of Connecticut. Owners Rachel Redding and Laura Westner couldn't be happier to call CT their home, getting inspiration from the state around them. As teachers, having summers off and being around the beach all day was a heavy influence in their designs. Rachel, who has a background in graphic design came up with a design for a crab and then put it onto a few shirts. After wearing the shirts around for a few days they started to receive an overwhelming response from the community around them. With this inspiration they decided to print a new order and sell them at a local event where they were a big hit! After that, the rest is history and Coastal Crab CT was born.
Coastal Crab CT strives to create a brand that is comfortable, casual, and a good fit for the entire family. Their colors are fun and bright, capturing the feeling of being on a summer beach vacation, but all year long! All their products are made locally in CT with many different seasonal options and designs available.
