Who Made Your Clothes?
Dongguan Ocoo Apparel & Fashion in China, they were a small team who manufactured women’s wear, headed by Irene and Ms. Coco Guo. They were a team of 50 and their motto was “quality is life, style is soul” who valued happiness between all their employees and who practiced safe and ethical trading. Unfortunately they closed their doors in early 2016 due to the economic crisis in China. They shared our passion for environmentally friendly clothing and produced our material using the closed loop system, which ensures that the chemicals used in producing bamboo viscose and our organic bamboo fabric did not harm their waterways. This team created our Classics and Orbit Collection.
Manufacturing Team Leader
Fanny Lam, an Australian designer and clothing manufacturer who works with her sister & team of garment makers in DongGuang. She has been in the Australian fashion industry for over 25 years and we are excited to have her on board with our up coming collection!
