What the brand can prove
!

The brand carries size XS-XL off-hand, but it also does made-to-order for ALL sizes -- plus-size welcome!

Girl of the Earth is 100% women-owned and women manufactured. The founder Ruby, grew up in downtown Manhattan to antique-dealer parents, so "I inherited and cultivated relationships with vintage suppliers, flea market owners, eccentric grandmas, and just plain hoarders, who I buy gorgeous old fabric from. This supply chain is super unconventional and requires my life-long expertise, and a lot of luck, but basically I'm just really really good at shopping" says Ruby

How the founder Ruby says, Girl of the Earth is a one-woman show!

Ethically and locally made in NY by the brand's legendary seamstress Cici

Every piece is made from vintage fabrics dating 1930-1999. Ruby, the founder, sources these personally using her lifelong knowledge. These leftover pieces of fabric are so small that other brands would never bother to use them. Ruby, the founder says "I understand why— it's a super time-intensive business model. I am always spending way too much time negotiating prices, inspecting fabrics' condition, and giving my seamstress complex instructions about which remnants are for which styles"

Few-of-a-kind™ womenswear shop funded by Ruby, a New York City & Copenhagen based girl. Ruby's pieces are made of truly upcycled vintage fabric remnants dating 1930-1999 with zero-impact on the environment. You're not shopping – you're recycling
