NUBE Seattle is NuBe Green's new private-label line of women's sculptural garments, crafted entirely from local materials by local artisans.

And this from a girl born on August 17th, the “Day of Explosive Power,” a day with a horoscope profile that reads “as accurate as hell” (for a similar reaction of your own peruse the pages of “The Secret Language of Birthdays”)...
