OTTUNO is a dyeing studio based in Switzerland. We work exclusively with natural colors. Products are all handmade and unique.
We discovered natural dyeing quite accidentally and made our first experiences with an initial “kit” of colors without any specific intention. We could have stopped there, having made some gifts as well as a few sporadic discoveries. But we had found a real pleasure that we then turned into a project: give a certain standing to our prized experiments, build up a series of articles into a kind of corpus, and finally, define a brand in its own right: OTTUNO – a name we invented to develop a round and affirming sound.

Flowers, leaves and bark are the heart of our project. Shining or muted, robust or delicate, they all have lively color in them. Each one has its own character, beauty and authenticity.
When we started out, our original desire was to regain contact with basic materials, to draw from the sources of nature, and to play on the subtlety of color and materiality.
We intend our approach to be both controlled in its implementation and intuitive in its result – though without claiming any particular tradition. Do and and let it be.
