our team

Want to discover the team behind otaaki™? It’s over here!

We are delighted to be able to present our team to you at last! We hope that the lifting of the barriers will allow us to come and meet you very soon.  🙂

Today, our team is composed of about forty employees spread over three continents: Europe (France), America (USA) and Asia (China).

Although today, all the people involved in this project are spread all over the world, geographical distance has never been a barrier to teamwork and spirit. On the contrary, we work hand in hand with a common goal: to make our world more sustainable and tolerant.

All together, although different in our identities, origins or cultures, we share values that bring us together: inclusion, empathy, respect for others… Values also shared by the brand we are proud to work with today.

otaaki™ is this. A mix. Human values. A family. The human being at the heart of everything.

Discover these men and women who want to make a difference in the eyewear industry…
