Omi Woods is a boutique brand grounded in a love for timeless silhouettes, rich cultural textiles, and ethical practices.
Omi means water in the West African Yoruba language, a peoples referred to as the Nago in the Caribbean. Together with Woods, it pays tribute to Owner and Creative Director Ashley Alexis McFarlane's Jamaican lineage. The island's name derives from the indigenous Awarak word Xaymaca which translates to The Land of Wood and Water.
Omi Woods designs are inspired by a wholistic appreciation, exploration and reimagining of African fabrics and textiles in our contemporary world. Our textiles tell a story and are meant to add an extra layer of meaning for special occasions in our clients lives.
