The why behind the try.

 
Everybody thinks we should have moustaches and hairy arses, but in fact you could put us all on the cover of Vogue.
— Helen Kirk, on women's rugby teams, 1987
 
 

The Idea

It shouldn't be hard to find apparel and equipment for the modern female rugby athlete; after all, rugby is among the fastest growing sports for girls and women worldwide. It resonates in a deep and meaningful way with millions of female athletes, from all backgrounds and walks of life. So where's our kit at? Be it on the pitch, in the gym, or in everyday life, Ruggettes should have options that are made specifically for them, as female athletes. We couldn't find what we wanted on the market- and trust us, we searched. It wasn't out there...so we made it ourselves. 

The Realness

Straight up? We're sick of buying women's athletic apparel -and women's apparel in general- that values appearance over performance. Why can't it be both? Sure, we want to look good, but we also train, hit, and play hard. That's why our apparel is tried and tested by lady ruggers of all shapes and sizes.   

The Final Score

We're starting small- real small- but we've got us some big dreams. We're not a fancy corporation, just a little gang of ruggers with some ideas, lead by a lady prop who got sick of not being able to find the stuff she wants, or needs, to buy. Making stuff is expeeensive, though, so we gotta grow the old fashioned way- slowly, bit by bit, with some good old fashioned work. But we know where we are going with this, and we can't wait to share it with you. We're playing the long game here- a full 80, if you will- it would be awesome if you were on our team for it.
