Based in Brooklyn New York, Ruby Red Skipper is a silkscreen and letterpress studio. We design kitchen and table linens the old-fashioned way—by hand. Every product in the line is sketched on vellum before a hand-pulled prototype is created.

From our studio we watch sailing and cargo ships from all over the globe glide into New York harbor, and listen to the foghorns blow on misty days. And that would suit the Ruby Red Skipper just fine.

Captain John Archibald McLean sailed his ship…the “Ruby”…in these waters back in the late 1800s as he traveled from Scotland to North America. Today, his great-granddaughter follows in the footsteps of her sailor—and printer!—forebears at the Brooklyn studio named in the Captain’s honor.
