Opia started being predominately hand made in Byron Bay - while all designs are still made locally by the designer, Opia now seeks off shore production, with a beautiful family in Indonesia tailoring the garments in small production runs to ensure sustainable and ethically made clothing.
Our small family run team is paid above award wages, our team is working in a clean light filled environment - and we feel so lucky to have connected with and to be working along side with these artisans.
We are a small business dedicated to ethical practises, but we also hold high value in our pieces being created in the most sustainable way possible. We only use natural fibres, our products are packaged in casava based packaging, and sent out in compostable bags. We donate the offcuts and excess of our materials to the local community where our pieces are produced, which are created into wares that are sold at the local markets.
