The Ottowin Shop - By Makers for Makers
A collection of sustainable designers, makers & artists, celebrating tradioinal craft & natural fibers.
In 2016 we launched our first footwear collection - designed and made by hand by us from our Bristol studio. We began selling online & at markets around the country where we met lots of other amazing young brands.
We realised that working together with these brands as a collective it was possible to have as much a presents on the high street as any large retailer. So we started our own serise of pop up shops in Hackney, London in the same location now home to the Henri Store & Studio. With the success of the pop up shops we set out to create a full time home to showcase our footwear along side a curated selection of the best local makers & designers.
Our good friend Hetty from Henri set up shop in Hackney and we came back to the brands homeland Bristol and started The Ottowin Shop. In 2019 we moved premises to Gloucester Rd where we have intergarted our shoe making studio with our shop allowing customers to experience the tradional craft of shoe making.
