Arula Leader

Oct 29  |  Altar’d State

Arula is a sister brand to Altar’d State and is built for women who are unafraid to be themselves. We are more than a retailer, we are a safe haven for women who have always been ignored or excluded. We believe size should never limit your fashion choices. You’re more than a number… You’re Xquisite, Amazing, Beautiful + Captivating. In the end, it’s not about a pretty dress or a new pair of jeans… it’s about giving you the shopping experience you have always deserved. We see you… We hear you… We Support you.

Our Mission
“Stand Out. For Good”. At Arula, those four words are more than just than just our motto, they are why we exist. From Mission Mondays, where 10% of our net proceeds go directly to local charitable organizations, to our long-standing partnership with Coprodeli USA, in which we are in the process of building 22 schools for impoverished communities in Peru, we are committed to giving back in meaningful ways to those in need.
