Otto and Spike are part of a growing international voice of artisan manufacturers practising traditional crafts.
The company is as much about a place as a product. They have been making knitted accessories in Brunswick (an inner suburb of Melbourne) for the past 40 years.
Their products are the result of a passionate devotion to knitting, their desire to operate outside the short life cycle of mass production and its reliance on disposability, and the skill and ingenuity of their staff.
At Otto and Spike they admire well made, well-designed stuff that you’ll love to wear on your head, around your neck and out on the town. They use a combination of surplus supplies of beautiful pure lambs’ wool and the best technical man-made fibres. They utilise adaption, reusing, salvaging, saving and recycling as part of their means of production.
As a Melbourne-based company, we’re happy to stock some of Otto and Spike’s bike-friendly and bike-inspired products, proudly knitted in East Brunswick 3057.
