The Rainbow Connection was founded in 1980 by Mark & Sylvia Schwartz. We decided back then that the world needed a better made pair of suspenders. Mork from Ork was wearing his now infamous Rainbow Suspenders...Kermit was singing "The Rainbow Connection and Me".
It all seemed to make sense at the time. And so, our company was born. In the beginning, all we made were rainbow suspenders for adults and children. We then branced out ot other accessories and colors.
Since 1980, we have tried our best to make and buy quality suspenders, braces, ties and fashion accessories for the whole family. The line was then expanded to include Masonic, Shriner, OES & Elks gift items and merchandise. In 1996, we began our journey onto the world wide web. We now offer one of the largest selections on the internet. We will continue to add quality items to our ever expanding e-Store.
We hope that your shopping experience is enjoyable and that you are truly satisfied with your purchases. Mark & I want only to offer you a quality product at a good price. We are a family company that will try to give each of you the best service possible. Without you, our wonderful customers, the Rainbow Connection would not exist today. Thank you all for becoming an important part of our ever growing RC Family.

PS: Our two sons took a slightly different direction. A few years ago, they started an interactive Micro Brew Beer website... BeerAdvocate.com Their "free to use" web site now gets over 250 Million hits a month and has over 750,000 members worldwide. Their Beer Advocate magazine has added a different realm to the beer world. We are quite proud of Todd & Jason (The Alstrom Brothers) and what they have accomplished.
