Hi, I'm Ruby Sanders! Thanks so much for dropping in. I'm glad you are here!

I am a clothing designer based in Tubac, Arizona. I love living in a small, tight-knit community 40 miles south of Tucson.

While the Arizona desert is where my heart lives now, it’s not where my creative journey began.

 My keen eye for fashion developed from my experience and background in ladieswear manufacturing and merchandising, including fabric sourcing and buying in my country of birth, South Africa.

I met my husband (a true blue American) in Cape Town in 2003 and we left South Africa in 2007 when we were married. We traveled around the world where his work took us for a couple of years and eventually settled in Southern Arizona.

When I moved to the USA I gained weight and struggled to find clothing that was flattering, affordable AND comfortable. I wanted a wardrobe that I could keep building on every season where the styles were modern but timeless.

Frustrated by the lack of clothing choices that worked for me and missing the creative process that was my career in South Africa; I started Ruby Jane in 2011.

I have been a size 6 and a size 16. My clothing is all about disguising the “situation” areas.

I am constantly searching for ways to flatter women of all shapes while keeping a comfort fit in mind.

I am passionate about employing locally.  I work with a woman owned manufacturer in Green Valley & contract with home based sewers in Tucson.

My wish is that you’ll love wearing each piece as much as I loved creating it!


 If you live in the Tucson area, please contact Ruby to make an appointment for coffee or a mimosa in a fun, no pressure shopping environment at her studio in beautiful Tubac. Bring your girlfriends!
