NUBE opened in 2009, following a two-week visit by founder Ruth True to China. Ready to invest in local artists, U.S. manufacturing, and the kind of ingenuity born from solving design challenges with limited materials, Ruth founded a mercantile where creativity, green living, and local flavor abound. NUBE is now a presence for goods online and in Seattle’s Capitol Hill storefront.
