About Red Rufus Dublin
Christina is the designer and chief maker at Red Rufus, always hands on and nurturing the brand. Not formally trained in sewing or design, Red Rufus was inspired by the family dog, Rufus the Irish Setter. Over 10 years ago Christina made soft toy SockDogs for her three children. The business grew from there and a love of sewing with a creative spirit. Christina explores construction and production methods and challenges herself continuously to produce a higher standard of design and handiwork. "I actually enjoy the constraints of designing, using a pair of socks as the starting point."

Every Red Rufus is designed and handmade in Ireland. Rather than sewing a skin, we cut, sew and stuff socks to compile the SockAnimals. The process is not fast, it's a form of soft sculpture. We use the best quality socks, threads, toy stuffing and felt. This year we are introducing Irish tweeds to our designs to give our products the heritage look and feel they deserve.
