The OM Collection

Empowering women through art

Who They Are

After a soul-searching adventure to Bali, former lawyer Katie Armstrong was inspired by her personal adventures to design versatile, eco-conscious clothes that can travel everywhere you do. So, she started The OM Collection, specializing in handmade, eco-friendly and art inspired clothing. Through unique designs and functional styles, The OM Collection hopes to re-empower people to use their external appearance as a reflection of their inner selves. Katie believes that we are our own greatest piece of art, and should dress as such.

Why We Like Them

The OM Collection is Katie’s first chapter in a lifelong project to bring conscious, sustainable living into mainstream culture via her eco-friendly fashion pieces. By breaking the cycle of the traditional fast fashion culture through sustainable production, The OM Collection pushes boundaries by reuniting the art and fashion worlds.

By meeting and working with designers nationwide, The OM Collection has developed a unique style inspired by the lifestyles of their artists. To date, they carry designs from 13 artistic designers, as well as the brand’s own design team–infusing personal style into each and every piece.  Many of the pieces carried by The OM Collection are made in limited qualities, and most are made in part by hand. By taking time for each unique piece, The OM Collection infuses the personalities and lifestyles of their workers into their colorful items.

Voted one of the best yoga pants by international magazine Yoga Journal, their H2OM Collection embodies their mission for a better planet by utilizing recycled plastic into quirky styles you won’t find anywhere else. From yoga to kayaking, their design makes them water friendly and quick to dry. The designs of eye-catching H2OM Collection are inspired by various influential artists, infusing style into each pair.

Recycled PET utilizes salvaged post-industrial PET scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers. These plastics are dried, crushed, and spun into yarn in order to create recycled PET fabric, or polyester. By providing a use for recycled plastics, companies encourage recycling programs worldwide, while adding new value to discarded items. Currently, over half of virgin PET production goes towards making textiles, so by utilizing recycled PET, post-consumer materials are both diverting waste while taking the place of raw materials. This helps to reduce the demand for the extraction of oil, as well as energy used to produce new synthetic fibers.

Recycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and cleaning, sorting, and breaking it down into its basic form (such as fibers or pellets). This material is then used to produce new items. Recycling keeps useful materials from being discarded in landfills, prevents resource extraction due to the creation of new materials, and provides a new life for used items. Recycling can utilize both pre-consumer waste (materials left over from production) or post-consumer materials (used clothing, empty water bottles, etc). This product is made from recycled content.
