The Pink Monkey Company was established in February 2007 by Ruth Summers as a sister company to John Summers Limited. John was primarily a consultant pattern grader for the shoe trade and utilised laser technology for cutting patterns in acrylic. In recent years he has branched out significantly into other laser cutting and engraving services for industry specialising in wood, acrylic and leather. However, Ruth saw a potential for producing high quality laser cut and engraved giftware specialising in leather and acrylic along with a quality gift online store.

In October 2007, Dr. Jodie Nikel joined the company to help The Pink Monkey Company expand into an unusual & funky, yet quality and sophisticated online giftware store. We are a family run business who prides ourselves on our customer service and high production standards, something which our testimonials support. Our origins began by producing bespoke projects for individuals and small businesses whilst developing our own gift related products. As our initial products (quality leather bookmarks and Christmas tree decorations) took off in June 2008 we realised that there was a market for our ideas along with a service for personalised gifts. Coupled with this we also felt strongly that despite buying online, a customer should still feel they have had a personnel touch to their purchase when their goods arrived with them. Hence we take packaging and gift wrapping seriously.

As Ruth also has a long history in buying and selling quality small antiques with a particular interest in jewellery, these items also form part of The Pink Monkey Company online store. Hence, the products that The Pink Monkey Company manufactures are now complimented by the Vintage jewellery and gifts along with other specifically chosen items from other manufacturers, widening the choice of unusual and high quality gifts that can be purchased from us.

The Pink Monkey Company Ltd website was launched in 2009 with a number of products and happy customers under their belt to build upon. The new and expanded website was launched in October 2011. Since then The Pink Monkey Company Ltd continues to grow and long may it continue!

Thank you to all of our new and loyal customers who have liked and purchased any of our gifts.
