a mixture of heterogeneous elements; potpourri; miscellany.
Emerging from a friendship of ideas, spaces and individuals, OLIO was brought together by a mutual love for geometry, getting lost in parks and all things sushi. Recognising a major gap in the market for indigenous brands at accessible prices, Aashna Singh and Sneha Saksena launched OLIO in November 2015 as a destination for high quality, differentiated design that celebrates made in India.
In this age of mass retailers churning out products relentlessly, we wanted to create a brand with a soul. So instead of designing in collection format, we tell stories. A story format allows us to be dynamic, shifting our shift our beat with changing seasons and trends, while staying true to our rhythm. People love being told a story, and we're a brand that loves to converse.
Our brand aesthetic is contemporary with a touch of whimsy. Our pieces are feminine, playful, colourful - and most of all comfortable! Graphical elements, geometric patterns and smart details are key cornerstones of OLIO designs.
A big picture approach coupled with detail-oriented eye, our stories come together like layers of a toasty apple pie.
