THE OROTON STORY
Oroton is synonymous with craftsmanship, accessible luxury and a unique Australian sense of beauty.
With over 80 years of commitment to innovative design, using time honoured materials and techniques, Oroton has a long and respected history.
Founded in Sydney in 1938 by Boyd Lane, Oroton started as an importer of luxury European textiles. From its very beginnings, Oroton believed in quality, working to source the best materials around the world.
Oroton soon transitioned into design, revolutionising Australian fashion by replacing the traditional materials used for evening bags with woven metallic mesh - a solely utilitarian material at the time. The collections of shimmering gold and silver evening bags were widely sought after. Oroton became symbolic of Australian fashion: relaxed, modern, practical and beautiful.
Re-imagining utility into an object of beauty is an intrinsic part of Oroton’s identity, and will continue to be a focus with a commitment to creating highly functional desirable pieces.
Since 2018 Sophie Holt, Oroton’s creative director, has re-invigorated and reinterpreted Oroton’s rich heritage injecting a spirit of now, evolving the leather goods product offering, and launching full ready-to-wear collections.
Oroton delivers beautiful fabrics, fresh colour palettes, supple leathers and modern hardware. Sophie Holt’s Oroton embodies a fresh take on modern classic - creating easy-to-wear pieces that are unfussy and contemporary, designed to elevate everyday dressing. Utility, style and quality come together – perfectly.
“Wearing Oroton gives you a sense of confidence and style that looks effortlessly pulled together. We hope you enjoy having Oroton as part of your life as much as we do.” - Sophie Holt
