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 of this project called Ottway The Label.
Cutting new shapes from old traditions
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. Ageless garments crafted to journey through generations. Cross-seasonal, trendless, unisex designs. Timeless and with no boundaries, like a true explorer. Created in the footprints of two spirited voyagers with a deep respect for nature, exploration and tradition, Ottway pays tribute to the narrative of true vintage.

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.
