The operation had now moved from apartment to garage as the business grew - allowing them to find new ways to use colour, washes and fits and sourcing routes.
Our designs are not mass produced meaning Okuh constantly reinvent small numbers of unique designs.
We’re on a mission as a business to be as sustainable as possible, putting it at the heart of the design process. Using simple, creative, design cues which try to find new cool uses for recycled materials.
