Oroton’s transition from importer to manufacturer evolved in the early fifties when the company saw the fashion potential in an unlikely material: interwoven metallic mesh. Previously thought of as a solely utilitarian material, the metallic mesh, which was discovered in an industrial safety glove factory in Germany, was cleverly recast as a fashion must-have item by the young company. The first mesh piece, released in 1951, was a make-up “powder puff” compact.
Today, Oroton has evolved to become one of the most celebrated brands on the market, building upon its reputation for luxurious, yet accessible products imbued with a strong sense of heritage and spirit. Full of magical details and unexpected flourishes, Oroton’s uniquely Australian expression of affordable luxury is resonating with customers all over the world.
Ever since it was founded in 1938, Oroton has been synonymous with products of the highest quality and became iconic in the sixties and seventies for popularising gold and silver metallic mesh women’s accessories.
