We like to think of OTTWAY as a community rather than just a clothing brand. We are a lifestyle vehicle, where we can inspire the way people live, the way people look, and the way people feel. Our mantra, LIFE IS FOR LIVING! Always enjoying the present moment, friends & outdoors with the aim of living an adventure near or far and with sustainability every time at the forefront.
Created and self-founded in the footprints of two-spirited voyagers, Neri and Manu, with a deep respect for nature, exploration and tradition. Ottway pays tribute to the spirit of community and the gift of living. - "OTTWAY is a breath of fresh air in a world where fashion can often lose its essence. The clothes we wear should not only reflect our own styles and quirks, but the values we hold, the people we aspire to be and the life we are continuing to live."

We believe in a brighter future.
At OTTWAY we are proud to promote a sustainable future by donating funds towards the installation of solar power in community-owned projects around Australia that otherwise are unlikely to happen.
We aim to improve our communities by giving the gift of clean energy. You can read about our sustainability program here
Stories to be retold, clothing made to last
Each Ottway piece has borrowed from a style inspiration of the past bringing with it a story. Uniquely designed prints and details that guide the nostalgia. Premium quality garments crafted to journey through generations. Cross-seasonal, trendless, unisex designs. Timeless and with no boundaries, like a true explorer.
The Otway Ranges
Scenic tall forests, fern-ﬁlled gullies, waterfalls and rolling hills guarded by a fierce stretch of coastline. The first sight of terra firma for many thousands of courageous 19th-century drifters travelling to Australia. This untamed land is today named after Captain William Albany Otway… The Otway Ranges, largely untouched and harbouring a fascinating history, is the inspiration for this project called Ottway The Label.
MEET OUR ARTISANS
All designs are born from our cosy cabin house in Melbourne, Australia. Our premium quality fabrics are sourced personally by us and then designs are manufactured by a family-owned business of artisans based in South East China. They are such great and talented people with more than 30 years craftsmanship experience and now part of the Ottway Family.
We go to the factory regularly to make sure all quality standards are met. In between meetings... we always find time to take a little break to go and explore that amazing country.
