Ottowin was founded by us, Lucy Lloyd & Oliver Cross in 2016. Born out of a love for footwear craft, contemporary design and a great respect for their chosen material, Leather. All of our footwear is made by Lucy & Ollie in limited editions at the Ottowin Studio / Shop 56 Gloucester Rd ,Bristol, UK.
We design & make traditional, everyday wearable styles with our passion for colour & creating playful collections using the highest quality leather that ages beautifully with wear & can easily be worn with a range of styles.
Starting this brand has given us to platform to actively promote and provide customers with a 'slow fashion' option. Using our knowledge of materials to inform our decisions, from design, selection and craftsmanship. The opposite to a production line, each pair is has been on a journey from raw material to a stamped and signed Ottowin shoe. This complete engagement in the making process creates a highly personal product, which we hope carries through from us to you.
We hope to build long-term relationships with our customers and promote an appreciation for slow production, which starts at your feet and grows to change societal consumption.
