Fresh out of fashion school, designer Nevada found herself in New Zealand's windy, wet city of Wellington without a raincoat and without a job. Dreaming of creating luxurious moments in the rain she began the Okewa journey.
All raincoats needed to be completely waterproof, every seam sealed for ultimate protection, lining was a must for comfort and breathability, and sustainability an essential part of building a modern business. Designing for ease and longevity was the ultimate need.
Today Okewa fulfils this vision – waterproof to a rating of 10,000mm, fully lined and breathable up to 8,000g/sqm. Nevada and her team strive to make the very best rainwear with a unique colour-driven perspective from Wellington, New Zealand – their rainy testing ground on the edge of the earth.
Designed for every wet, sophisticated city the world over.
Ethically made in New Zealand.
