About us: our mission is to serve you, the golfer.
TOMI OTEE is not a golf apparel company. We are sports chic fashion designers, green and responsable fabric users and textile recyclers. Just like you we are dreamers, and together we dream big and achieve sustainably.
We have a unique vision: to help communities all around the world achieve environmental sustainability without missing out on being fun and creative. We want to inspire through a lifestyle of fashion and environmental habits integrated naturally into our daily routine.
Our mission is to fashion golfwear in a sustainable and impactful way for our community. It is to help golfers wear ecofriendly fashion, we help country clubs become recycling platforms, and we help charities educate the next generation of ecoresponsable citizens. Our mission was inspired by the essence of golf: the connection between the athlete and nature.
We have a distinct set of values compared to other brands: first and foremost we thrive on product quality, looking to offer you the best fabrics and finishes to help you look (and play) your best on the course. Second, we are guided by ecoresponsability, using sustainable fabrics and helping our community, customers and vendors, to care for the environment. Finally we are fun and creative, creating apparel that is unique, colorful, and will help you look your best.
Made locally: as of 2013, we are committed to support domestic communities and partner with local manufacturers to provide our customers with the best quality and the lowest carbon footprint. [Note that while we make a strong effort to do so, sometimes we don't have the capacity to produce locally, in particular concerning certain types of very small accessories and fabrics. We are constantly looking for ways to become 100% local, so should you wish to help us in finding reliable local producers, please contact us via our customer service form.]
Minimize your carbon footprint: as of 2012 we have officially become a recycler of clothes. This is a completely free service we offer to our customers and from which we do not generate any profit, except a sense of pride for helping to become the leading zero-impact apparel golf brand in the USA recycling more clothes than we sell!
“TEE for Two”: Tee off with Charity in mind. Our community involvement is a cornerstone of our philosophy and we created our “Tee for Two” program to engage our customers with our community, and support charities, focusing on education and golf values and ethics. Our partnership extends from support in events, fundraising, educational programs and product donation.
