One of the things we enjoy most at ohw? are the regular trips to our factory in China. These are a chance to see our latest designs come to life and catch up with the guys that work hard to produce our new range each season.
When ohw's owner Stephen Gill paid his last visit he invited the team from one of our favourite men's online destinations Hypebeast to join him.
Travelling from Hong Kong to the factory took in a ferry ride to Guandong's southern coast and then a minibus journey to Zhuhai through some of the most beautiful countryside in China. The factory is a family-owned business with many local families also represented among the employees, so the welcome is always warm. The opportunity to take time out with some of the staff and sample Zhuhai's famous seafood was another highlight of our trip.
One of the things that most impressed the guys from Hypebeast is that ohw? actually owns the factory where our shoes are made, a rarity these days. Their video below takes you behind the scenes and documents the key processes that are involved in the making of a pair of ohw? shoes.
Hopefully it presents an honest picture of who we are. We hope you enjoy it.
