ONAR is a Helsinki-based design house established by Irene Kostas in 2014. ONAR, which means “dream” in ancient Greek, specialises in high-quality shearling clothes and accessories, leather bags and knitwear. ONAR is the fusion of unlikely matches. In the collections soft materials meet geometric forms, richness of texture meets minimalism, organic meets plastic and the stark Scandinavian lines meet the mystical.
ONAR draws from the traditional craft of Finnish and Greek artisans. All items are handmade in Finland and in Northern Greece, in areas which have taken pride in their skilled leatherwork for centuries. ONAR uses only ethically produced Italian shearling and 100% vegetable tanned leather.
The first ONAR collections have been featured in internationally acclaimed magazines such as Vogue UK, i-D, The New York Times, Elle and Harper’s
Bazaar. Currently, ONAR collections are available in selected stores in New York, Los Angeles, United Kingdom, Russia, Finland
