Omtology is an earth-friendly, highly cultural lifestyle brand. Our purpose is to convey a sense of serenity, comfort and unmatched style in your everyday life and home. Our collection of sustainable fabrics, upcycled materials and natural resources are transformed by tailors, woodworkers, artist, and sculptors to combine the beauty of culture and spirituality with the functional needs of today.
Our process starts with creativity and is cultivated by skilled people. By traveling to shake hands or by connecting through the power of social media, we discover and connect with talented artisans in Guatemala, India, Bali, Africa, Nepal and right where we began – the U.S.A. We make it easy for you to discover unique garments, accessories and handicrafts from near and far. 95% of our products are handcrafted by people, families and cooperatives to help support their local economy.
Founded in an NYC studio apartment by a certified yoga instructor and practitioner, Omtology began as a two woman operation--the founder and her seamstress. Today not much has changed. We are still small, consisting of only five employees and a few highly-skilled tailors that sew much of our apparel. We love being small and pride ourselves in our family-like environment where our staff and the environment matter.
Omtology continues to be inspired by world culture, ancient symbols, Sanskrit, sacred texts, cultural garments, essential fragrances and so much more. Since birth, Omtology's focus has been to foster a conscious lifestyle by inhabiting closets, homes and other personal space with calming decor and reminders of the world's culture, spirituality and continuity. By embracing our small staff and the world around us, we continue to grow from the inside out.
We are a sustainable and environmentally responsible company. This means we try to reduce our carbon footprint by using earth-friendlier materials, recycled natural resources, and natural fibers. However, we realize that the manufacturing of raw fibers is a man-made process and during manufacturing, organic compounds may be lost.
Thus, because of the current lack of innovation surrounding natural fiber manufacturing, we acknowledge that some of our materials, although sustainable and from manufactures that are 100% natural or organic certified, there are discussions around what is truly organic fabric. Nevertheless, we own our internal sustainable practices and they can’t be manipulated by outside sources. This is why we firmly believe sustainability is key to the future of manufacturing.
