Reimagining our turbulent relationship with rain.
Okewa was founded in the windiest city in the world – Wellington, New Zealand – by Nevada and Nick Leckie.
All Okewa coats are waterproof with a rating of 10,000mm and every seam is sealed for ultimate protection. Coats are completely lined and breathable up to 8,000g/sqm/24hrs. Technical two-layer fabrics are prepared for Okewa by bluesign® System Partner mills in Japan and Taiwan. Okewa coats are made slowly, consciously and ethically with our dream manufacturing partner in Bangkok, Thailand.
Okewa is designed for every wet, sophisticated city the world over, where we humans are at the whim of mighty mother nature.
Okewa is our nod to our homeland, our land of the long white cloud. In New Zealand's indigenous language, te reo Māori, the word 'Okewa' means large grey raincloud / grey stone.
