About Us

os & oakes creates comfortable, unisex, clothing made of high-quality fabrics that both kids and their parents will adore.  Established in London Ontario, our contemporary designs provide detailed, fun, fashionable and durable apparel for your busy little birds.

Launched in July of 2016, Os & Oakes is the creation of duo Erika Oakes and her brother Michael Lipari.  As a mom of two toddler boys, Erika felt inspired to produce a line of clothing that her kids could play in comfortably, while looking fashionable and on-trend. Michael also felt compelled to design a sleek contemporary brand, that would portray an adult look for toddlers.  Partnering up, they decided to put their visions into action and started their company. 

All of our clothing products are made of an incredibly soft, bamboo-blend, sustainable fabric that is durable and ethically made. Our clothing is manufactured in Toronto, Ontario and our accessories are handmade in London, Ontario. When you purchase your items from Os & Oakes. you can trust that it was made right here in Canada from fabrics that are eco-friendly and sustainably sourced. 

Where did the name "OS & OAKES." come from? "Oakes" is the family name of one of our creators and co-founders and "OS" stands for Ostrich, our symbol and logo.  Why an Ostrich you ask?  To us, they resemble toddlers; they are fast, quirky, and much stronger then they appear!
