“My kids first started wearing OTO Design fleece sweaters 8 years ago. Being west coast kids they became an “everyday” essential. Eight years later all four of my kids still love to throw on their fleece whether it be for outdoor soccer practice, under their jackets for snowboarding, or just a walk in the forest. To this day they love to design their own sweater to make it uniquely their own. I absolutely love that they are locally made, that there is not one that is the same, and that I can throw them in the washer and the dryer, and they still look great years later!”
