Truth be told, scrubs have traditionally been thoughtless, disposable and 100% forgettable. The people who wear them, on the other hand, are the complete opposite: thoughtful, irreplaceable and memorable. So why shouldn’t they wear scrubs as impressive as they are?
That’s the question that got us started. Dreamt up and designed by a doc, we know firsthand the quality of care and craft you put into your work every. single. day. We bring that same sensibility to our scrubs. Our products exist to reflect your best self, helping you align the outside with the inside.
Fabled is a new kind of medical apparel company. We've prioritized growing responsibly from the very beginning. We produce our scrubs in small batches at a family-owned factory in northern California, which allows us to both support the local garment manufacturing industry and closely control the quality of our products. Our designs are not created with the mass market in mind, and neither is our company vision.
meet our founder
Hi! I'm Olga, the founder of Fabled. I'm a pediatrician based in Oakland, California and I've practically lived in scrubs for the past decade.
Ever since I can remember, I've used personal style to tell my story. In high school, purple hair and thrifted bell-bottoms reflected how I thought I fit into the world around me. And later in college, tomboy dresses and combat boots tipped off my classmates that I'd rather talk about healthcare inequality than stereoisomers. Then came medical school where my outfit was chosen for me — scrubs. It wasn't surprising that a pile of bleached fabric didn't let me express myself. But only years later did I realize how stifled I'd felt. So after searching for, and not finding, my dream scrubs — scrubs that let me do me — I created Fabled.
