Interview with designer Rowena Dugdale founder of Red Ruby Rose

Red Ruby Rose

One of my bags made it to the Oscars.

What inspired you to start your brand Red Ruby Rose?
I studied surface pattern at Edinburgh College of Art and created Red Ruby Rose in 2008, following a freelance illustration career. The move towards making was not only a reaction to my increasingly digital workload but also a curiosity about the advances in digital textile printing and online marketplaces for makers. Etsy provided an instant global marketplace in 2008 and wholesale/custom opportunities quickly followed.

What is the brand’s philosophy?
Handmade in Scotland, with quality materials and original contemporary prints. Nothing is outsourced, I make everything myself and there’s an integrity in that process.

What has been your greatest achievement so far?
One of my bags made it to the Oscars.
