The agency will target categories including stationery and social stationery, gifts and homeware, home textiles, daywear and nightwear, accessories and health and beauty.
“Rebel Girls is a publishing and media phenomenon, proving more than ever that there is a market for this sort of brand message and product,” says Rob Wijeratna, joint managing director, Rocket Licensing. “We’re thrilled to be representing this highly original, eye-catching and empowering brand.”
