Our attention to detail

Few can do what we do. With expansive long-term partnerships with hundreds of factories around the world and best-in-class creative and product development teams, we’re able to develop, manufacture and ship almost any type of houseware or tabletop product. Products include ceramic, stoneware, glassware, wood, plastic, cast iron, aluminum, stainless steel, and more!

Close relationships with over 400 factories worldwide, 15 offices in China, and offices in Thailand, Vietnam, and India give us a decisive advantage in the ever-changing face of global trade.

We have part ownership in 3 of the largest factories in Asia, allowing us to offer highly customized solutions for manufacturing, packaging/printing, design, and logistics—at unrivaled prices.

Our connections help retailers navigate the increasing pressures of currency fluctuations, tariffs, energy costs, and changes in government policy, while also being able to pass down incredible value to our consumers.

Led by iconic designer Laurie Gates, our creative team develops trend-forward, relevant, and innovative product introductions offering exceptional value. We work with artisans and craftspeople at home and abroad to create the next eye-catching color, material, and pattern for the modern home. We create visually compelling and coordinated branded programs and exclusive cross-merchandising statements that build brand recognition and set our partners apart on store shelves. 

We enforce rigorous Quality Control standards that ensure the safety and durability of our product lines.  Our QC includes factory testing overseen by our global teams, regular factory audits, and a well-defined social compliance protocol which are required of all manufacturing partners.  We provide an in-house testing lab, shipment inspections, and comprehensive after-sales service for customers as well.

From new concepts, product designs, manufacturing, packaging, and more Oculborn is a one-stop shop for any retail and consumer needs.
