We love to give props to a new little site we happily but accidentally happened upon. This one called Ruby Republic is cute and cozy yet fashion-forward and inspired.
Though it looks like much of the inventory is still in-the-making, Ruby Republic has the potential to be a one-stop shopping locale for cool artsy t-shirts. We love one called “Growl” that has a big, red tiger’s head plastered on the chest for $24, and another that features an adorable sketch of an owl for $20.
We suspect that the folks behind Ruby Republic may have their roots in the skateboarding industry, in which case, we applaud them all the more for branching out of the typical Southern California stuck-on-Vans and heavy-fonts vibe.
Check out Ruby Republic’s gallery which hosts fun and often affordable artwork by the likes of Art Dump’s Andy Jenkins as well as Eric Anthony, Misato Suzuki, Megan Baltimore and cool giclees by Tony Larson. You can learn more and see works by some of the artists on this blog.
And don’t miss the sketch book, loaded with photos that give you a good feel for what the Ruby Republic aesthetic is, but also works nicely as an inspiration gallery.
We’re expecting good things in the future from this little promising gem.
