Technology that was meant to simplify our lives has lead us astray and away from the real world... into a virtual one. Our brand hopes to empower people with knowledge and create pieces of art and clothing that spread our message for a simpler and happier analog way of life.
Folk Rebellion was created by our desire to encourage the return of living in real life. We love things that are tangible like nature, humans, paper, and music made with instruments. It's an appreciation and instruction manual for living in the present with actual things among flesh, blood, and bones people.
Giving Back to Protect the Future
We hope to encourage a love of nature, adventure, & inquisitiveness for future generation. When you purchase Folk Rebellion products, a portion of profits are donated to the Children & Nature Network helping to create a world where every child can play, learn and grow outdoors & away from screens.
Chief Rebel: Jess Davis
Jess Davis is the founder of Folk Rebellion - a movement where she promotes slower-living and the more mindful use of technology.
As a formerly plugged-in digital strategist and award-winning brand consultant, her fast tech-based career allowed her a unique perspective from the inside - out.
After 10+ years of helping clients find their digital voices, Jess looked up and realized she had in fact, helped create a society that was no longer present or connected at all. After much soul searching, research, and family-imposed vacations offline, she discovered her calling - to use her megaphone to inspire folks (and herself) to return to living in "real-life" ... all while balancing their digital one.
Jess is a speaker on the topics of unplugging, technology, balance, and slow living and a regular contributor for Huffington Post, Elite Daily, and Wanderlust. Jess's story has been featured in publications like Inc, Well + Good, Delta Sky Magazine, Observer, and was named Yoganonymous's '20 Female Yogaprenuers to Watch'. Her workshops, coaching, and corporate wellness programs share the learning’s of Folk Rebellion.
Her rebel spirit is fueled by meandering, cliffs, live music, New Orleans, bulldogs, her family, autumn, the Adirondacks, being bored and whiskey...not necessarily in that order.

The work of Folk Rebellion is so important in the current world and Jess functions with a self-awareness and intentionality that is great to see. And she's hilarious!" -Lauren Skonieczny; Discover Outdoors
"Jess' ability to captivate a room is rooted in her capacity to speak her truth and have it ring true for all present. In an age where technology has usurped our time, Jess' message of connection is a nourishing reminder." - Katie Knoche; Wanderlust Festival
