U.K.-based Rooby Lane creates playful made-to-order clothing with fantasy and science fiction themes from books, movies and television shows like Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Captain America, Harry Potter, and Star Wars, just to name a few. The company was created by a Portsmouth, England woman who was widowed at an early age and nearly homeless.
I have always enjoyed designing fabrics and clothing. I started out drawing on fabrics with fabric pens then moved onto buying in the coolest quirkiest fabrics I could . Now I prefer to design my own fabrics on my lovely computer. …When I started me and my kids were pretty much homeless in a caravan. Id been recently windowed and things really couldn’t get any worse. Now I have a fantastic small group of machinists working on new designs for me which frees up my time to work on new fabric ideas I have. …I like to think that my items are born in love and made in love.. then eventually worn with love!
