Our Brand

We are a brand created by women, for women.  

 

 

Ethos

 

Feminine, natural designs are the foundation of Olympia Etal’s collections. We create high-quality essentials for women that transcend season. We believe in making things well. We use natural materials, requiring less toxic chemicals for dyeing and processing and bringing the designs to life. More than this, we believe in keeping our work small-scale. We produce fewer, thoughtfully crafted pieces with intention. Every item an essential, a wearable part of the modern woman’s everyday life. Our hope is that these pieces will live in your wardrobe for years to come. Quality over excess, always. 

 

We create with the effects of garment-making in mind. We work closely with boutique factories in Bali and India to produce all of our pieces. Our factory partners support living wages, health care benefits, and the advancement of women in the workplace. Knowing and caring about the people behind our garments gives us hope for the fashion machine.

Kaili Scheer, Founder & Designer

 

Born and raised in Hawaii, the daughter of an artist mother and restauranteur father, Kaili honed her signature style between the foggy mountains of her remote home in Kula and the jungle surrounds of the island. She studied design and visual merchandising in San Francisco, working at Louis Vuitton, Saks Fifth Avenue and Anthropologie before realizing she dreamed to work for herself. In 2012 she launched her clothing line Olympia Activewear with a small collection of elevated activewear pieces that immediately caught the attention of the fashion press. Her signature eye and modern treatment of the feminine wardrobe has garnered a loyal following.

 

The birth of her son River led to the label’s evolution and foray into ready-to-wear. Motherhood inspired the creation of carefully assembled wardrobe pieces for everyday life, made of natural fibers with feminine silhouettes and ease of fit and form. Olympia’s signature linen dresses, button up tunics and smart trench coats exude a simplicity and effortlessness.
