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.
