Rudy Jude, a clothing brand founded by designer Julie O’Rourke, offers a line deeply rooted in a natural, outdoorsy lifestyle. Drawing inspiration from the rugged coast of Maine and the serene beaches of California, their apparel is designed for life’s simple pleasures – from collecting shells to impromptu swims.
Their commitment to sustainability is evident in every aspect of production. They use only the highest quality organic cotton, sourced from sustainable farms globally and milled in Japan, ensuring both environmental responsibility and premium quality. Their unique approach to denim, utilizing seconds and remnant fabrics from U.S. and Japanese mills, not only prevents waste but also conserves energy by reducing the need for new material production.
Rudy Jude takes pride in their natural dyeing process, conducted in their Los Angeles studio using plant-based dyes. This method eliminates the use of harsh chemicals and heavy metals, safeguarding waterways, consumers, and their production team.
Their garments are more than just clothes; they are a testament to a love for nature and a commitment to ethical production. Designed to endure and be cherished, Rudy Jude’s clothing is meant to get dirty, be loved intensely, and be passed down through generations. They welcome feedback on their innovative dyeing process, showing a dedication to continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.
