our story


Based in Boulder, Colorado, Rusty Bits® was founded by Andrea Malfitano.  Andrea is a mixed media artist, painter, collector and outdoor enthusiast who loves new challenges and experimenting with new techniques to bring life back into objects that would otherwise be discarded. Her passion to preserve the past, reduce waste and consumption led to the creation of Rusty Bits.  We offer beautiful rust across an array of products, including original handmade art, unique household goods, supplies and other incredible finds. Our products are authentic and each piece has a story that cannot be found anywhere else.
