WE'RE OBSESSED…ARE YOU?
At Oliver Thomas, we operate solely on humor and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. No one needs another bag. No One. But, everyone needs a dose of laughter and, let’s face it, we are not solving world peace. We are just trying to live the happiest, most fulfilling life we can while we are here…and carry cool bags while doing it.
Screw the fashion rulebook. Have fun. Love dogs. Be real. Welcome to Oliver Thomas.
Who is Oliver Thomas?
Our co-founder, Oliver Thomas, is a dog. Yes, a really cute and highly intelligent pooch. He is just as terrific as his name suggests. And, for a brand that never wanted to play by the fashion industry’s unwritten rules to begin with, we couldn’t think of a better co-founder for our brand.
What is Oliver Thomas all about?
Open-mindedness. Nobody needs another bag. Nobody really needs another anything. But we want stuff sometimes and there’s nothing wrong with that. We just won’t try to sell you on the fact that our bags will make your legs or weekends longer. They won’t. They will make neither your booty nor life story juicier. Our bags carry stuff. Not self-worth.
Why should you care?
- We are authentic – no B.S.
- We are a heck of a lot of fun. If we didn’t make you laugh we didn’t do our job
- We want to make your life easier, so we build bags with modern functionality to meet your everyday needs
- We are not lightweights, but we really like light weight bags!
Why do people love us?
We set out to solve the heavy multi-bag syndrome. Whether you are schlepping your books to class, your wardrobe on vacation or your workout gear to the gym, we have you covered. We designed our bags to make your life easy, your style effortless and well, just to have some fun and not take life so seriously.
Why do you want us in your wardrobe?
Oliver Thomas bags are the most functional, lightweight, vegan, machine washable, water resistant on the market. And even better, they are all completely customizable with our insanely cool array of badges. All you need is a hair dryer to adhere.
We are the first-ever, purely joyful line of functional, fabulous, f’ing cool, customizable weekenders, duffles, cross body bags and accessories for the busy-as-&*$& person. Every Oliver Thomas piece is designed to evoke unadulterated happiness and make life just a little easier. From the gym to class to a weekend getaway…we have you covered. Say goodbye to lugging multiple bags and hello to today’s multi-functional, modern bag -- one that will likely become a permanent fixture in your daily wardrobe. Oliver Thomas is the ultimate, affordable, do-it-all carrier that won’t break the bank or cause a spending fight with your parents.
