Mad Rags Fashions specializes in building wardrobes for women, assisting with coordinating & simplifying customer lifestyle with quality clothing hand picked by owner Karen Hansen-Thompson who only buys the best and works hard in finding the perfect fitting clothing for every body style including plus sizes.

Established in 1973 with stores in San Francisco's famous Cliff House, then later at the chocolate factory in Ghiradelli Square and Pier 39 on Fisherman's Wharf locations.

Starting in the spring of 1998 Karen opened her clothing boutique in San Rafael at Montecito Plaza in the heart of Marin County.  Little did she know she would become a San Rafael landmark as her passion and style of colorful art-to-wear has drawn and entertained lifelong customers for style, easy care, and value. 

Over the past 20 years, her business has grown, made a lasting impression in the California Fashion Markets and has become a premier retailer of brands URU and Tianello on the West Coast for the extensive in-stock selection.  Karen's art background influences color, textured fabrics, wearable art and unusual one-of-a-kind clothing selection. Her store specializes in California and American-made fashion and accessories. With style, quality, and customer service, Mad Rags has the perfect selection for making the perfect wardrobe.
