Rowdy Sprout was founded by Laura Angotti in 2003. Like many great stamps in the history of success, Rowdy Sprout began as a "side project" while Laura achieved her graduate degree in costume design. At the time she became inspired by a children's shop that was owned by one of her good friends in New York City. With her carefree and fun-loving attitude for walking a different path, Laura knew that she had to do something extraordinary. Deciding to flip the coin from previous triumphs in museum installations, Laura officially graced the children's fashion industry and took root with innovative and fresh concepts.
