Otomo, Fashion with a Conscience
Otomo is a Melbourne based fashion design company with a social and environmental conscience. They use luxe natural fabrics produced from ethical and sustainable textiles, such as silk, linen, and bamboo. At the same time they are actively supporting the independence of women
“OTOMO is about supporting women by ensuring better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for garment workers in the developing countries in which we choose to operate. We try to make a positive difference to the communities in which we work, by encouraging an environment that supports women in business and their need to support their own families.”
Otomo fashions are designed by team effort in Melbourne and handmade in Vietnam. In the case of the items now available at Seraph, they are tie-dyed and embroidered by hand. Not only are the Otomo styles gorgeous, relaxed and easy to wear, but you know you have done the right thing supporting their cause.
The Otomo we have in store at the moment is perfect for summer. Don’t be fooled by their light, floaty and relaxed vibe, the little quirks of tailoring have resulted in some interesting shapes and fit. I know that the temperature is still persisting with a bit of a bite, you’ll find some of the tunics, tops and dresses will work beautifully with other layered pieces you already have. Tights, t-shirt dresses and skinny jeans.
Designed for the free spirited woman of timeless style, I think you are going to love Otomo as much as I do.
