With a background in the fashion industry and a growing concern about the fast fashion culture and its effects on the planet, we wanted to find our own way to create a change in attitude and give another life to unique and wearable vintage clothing.
We hand-pick colourful vintage pieces from the 60’s-90’s to create sustainable collections, with a contemporary feel, combining amazing prints, colours and details. We believe vintage should be inclusive and accessible to everyone!
We hope that small independent brands like us will help to change the "buy cheap, wear once, throw away" culture and that people will start to understand that fast fashion brands cannot continue in this way.
We believe that giving vintage pieces another life and re-wearing great quality clothing is the only way forward for the fashion industry and the planet.

So, where does it all begin?
We thrive on finding unique colourful pieces with beautiful prints and details to carefully curate collections, we search the country for pieces we know you will love! Once found, the items are thoroughly cleaned, steamed and checked. Some items we find just need a bit of TLC, so any minor issues are fixed before we curate our special collections. If any items do have any defects we consider more than general wear and tear, we will make sure these are noted and photographed.
Once we're 100% happy with the condition of the collections we photograph and measure all pieces, showing them off at their best. (You may get to see a sneak peek if you're following us on instagram!) Once added to our online store it's over to you...as soon as we receive an order, we start work on getting it to you ASAP. Receiving an item from RUBU Vintage should be like receiving a gift, we take care in wrapping the items in plastic free packaging to ensure it arrives on your door-step looking as good as the item inside. We also carbon offset all deliveries and this is all included in the price of the item.
