Why is Ruby called Ruby?
A widely held belief among many ancient cultures was that rubies possessed special powers of protection and safety. They were used in armor to provide the maximum safeguard to warriors going into battle. Rubies were also thought to bestow their owners with health and wisdom.
This little bit of trivia resonated with me every time I envisioned this company. The more I thought about it, the more fitting the name Ruby became. Like these ancient beliefs, the purpose of Ruby’s products is to provide increased antimicrobial protection in clothing that is both comfortable and functional.
Our underscrubs and compression socks use silver-ion technology which provides germ-killing protection on both sides of the fabric. Ruby’s antimicrobial protection lasts twice as long as the less reliable coating process commonly seen in other products.
