NUBE Seattle is NuBe Green's new private-label line of women's sculptural garments, crafted entirely from local materials by local artisans. Materials consist of re-purposed garments and cast offs, as well as locally grown fibers from sustainable farms. Using these sources, seamstresses, knitters, spinners, paper makers, and felters design unique, one of a kind pieces that directly reflect the local character of the Pacific Northwest. The goal of this line, available exclusively at NuBe Green, is to continually re-discover local materials, to celebrate local craft, and to refine 'sustainable' design.

NuBe was a proud sponsor of CRAVEgreen, which took place at Seattle's Herban Feast on Tuesday the 11th. As CRAVE puts it: This glamorously green party proves that you don't have to sacrifice style to be sustainable. We love that this was an event with heart -- all of the raffle proceeds went to support the Women's Funding Alliance.

One of our favorite things about NuBe is the customers. This morning we were blessed with some adorable ladies who let us take photos for the web store of them trying on pieces from our clothing line. [For the record, the woman writing this blog is the short brunette, & I'm not referring to myself in those terms!]
