Ru Fabricates: Local bags handmade with heart

When it comes to designing great purses with originality and flair, local designer Jessica Ruth ("Ru") Galbreath has got it in the bag. Her unique handmade line, Ru Fabricates, is designed with one thing in mind: putting the fun back in functional.

Inspired by Mother Nature, and made with love, Jessica uses green and local products, whenever possible, to create each bag. All of her designs are completely original, and she welcomes any requests to customize a bag to fit your individual personality and style.

From large weekenders and diaper bags, to small satchels, wristlets, clutches and cosmetic bags, Jessica has got you and your beloved belongings covered. This fun commuter in Gold Volumes is a perfect pattern for summer, and big enough to fit your laptop in without feeling overloaded. This beautiful satchel in Kikyo Jade is versatile enough to wear in the day, but has major potential to heat things up with a cocktail dress at night.

Just recently featured as Etsy's Store of the Month in the Boulder Daily Camera, Ru is staking land on the fashion playing field, with no intention of disappearing anytime soon. Already working on a sister line, "Ru"cycled bags, made from used vintage fabrics, and accented with recycled metal and leather straps, Jessica is all aboard the fashion train... and these purses are off the tracks.
