PORTUGUESE CRAFTED SUSTAINABILITY
With a lifelong passion for vintage, art and travel, we landed in Portugal a few years back and it was love at first sight ! We literally fell in love with the country, its blue skies, raw arid landscapes in summer, turbulent fresh oceans but remarkably warm & genuine people.
During various trips throughout Portugal, we were fortunate to come across local artisans with unparalleled know-how. All of these encounters progressively nurtured our passion to develop timeless and sustainable lifestyle collections through unique craftsmanship, while safeguarding the artisanal skills doomed to disappear. That’s how ODILE was born !
In addition to our classic collections under the ODILE label, we also wish to collaborate with like-minded artisans and designers on joint projects and capsule collections, creating unique pieces which reflect this nomadic and expressive spirit. So stay tuned, chill-out and enjoy our journeys!
ODILE, THE NAME
ODILE was the name of my grandmother, my greatest source of inspiration. Her life-long philosophy of “Less is More”, developed through the tough times of World War II, is continually respected in our approach to design.
I remember so fondly my visits to her Parisian apartment, where I would spend hours watching her sewing a Liberty-printed bolero, knitting the most stylish mittens or creating a magnificent jewelry box out of recycled paper.
So Merci Mamie, you are my true guardian angel!
