Often asked where the name OBR comes from One Beach Road is where the OBR Design Studio is, right beside the sea. Inspired to design luxury Merino garments for you. The OBR team are one with nature whether on the sea shore or in the mountains of Central Otago where the Merino sheep are bred. OBR have been making garments in New Zealand for over 20 years, and can take pride in the fact that they are all 100% New Zealand made. Experts in New Zealand made luxury merino products, the family business run by Jan Turley has been selling garments throughout New Zealand and Australia for over 20 years and now export throughout the world. Jan has been in the fashion business for many years and has used New Zealand Merino for most of that time, and the reason she is so passionate about it is for all the myriad qualities associated with it. As Jan puts it, “All Merino is not created equal and New Zealand made Merino wool is undoubtedly the best in the world.” Our NZ Merino wool is ‘natures performance fibre’ and is a natural, renewable fibre that is warm without weight, odour resistant and durable.
