OTTO FINN is an Asian American woman run business based in Pittsburgh, PA. We believe in minimum waste, maximum comfort and authenticity.

 

 

Consciously Made

At OTTO FINN we make sustainable clothing and accessories that allow our customers to manifest who they are distinctly and comfortably. Our signature products are kimono inspired jackets that made from vintage kanthas, wool blankets and American quilts. Our textiles have a storied past and their uniqueness allows the wearer to empower and embrace their individuality. We offer a selection of ready made jackets and made-to-order, customizable options. These unisex, one-of-a-kind jackets are a conversation piece. We also make clutches and neck warmers with the leftover fabric from the production of our jackets. Our products make unique gifts at an accessible price that stand apart from big box store gifts.They are made by women for all folks, one of a kind, and a conversation piece. We are conscious creators, mindful of our resources.

 

Earth-Friendly Practices

Embodying a clean, modern, and natural aesthetic, OTTO FINN carefully considers a range of high quality & sustainable materials such as organic cotton, recycled or upcycled cotton, and flax linen to provide products that prove timeless for our customers. Conscious of our impact on the planet, we strive to be environmentally responsible through our fabrics, our water based inks, and our packaging.

OTTO FINN has achieved the requirements for the Bronze designation from the SWPA Sustainable Small Business Designation Program.

 

Culturally Inspired

Our founder, Rona’s background is bicultural. Growing up in Asia and NYC informed much of her openness to the cultural exchange of ideas. Likewise, during her extensive experience working in a museum environment, she became inspired by a diverse array of art collections. In particular, the Japanese woodblock prints in the Asian Art department at The Metropolitan Museum of Art continue to serve as an inspiration since she worked with them.

 

Locally made

All our designs are sewn in house, by Lauren of Why Sews, the workforce at East End Cooperative Ministries, a small factory in New Jersey, and screen printed in Pittsburgh.
