The Promise

Adaptability and grit are vital for the daily grind, and you need gear that makes it look easy.

Everything in the OCHRE handcrafted lineup is thoughtfully designed for the rugged minimalist, and handcrafted in Toronto, Canada. Each piece is built using heirloom-quality materials, and created by hand - carefully and one at a time. These goods will be at your service for years, taking on a wonderful rich character with age - one which tells a story uniquely yours.

Every effort is made to ensure that these goods will endure the test of time. Guaranteed to be free of manufacturing defects, each product is covered by a lifetime free repair policy. The OCHRE name has an excellent track-record, but in the unlikely event that your piece is not performing as it should, you can trust that this maker stands behind his product, and is faithfully committed to making it right.


My name is Julian Petti and I’m the owner / operator of OCHRE handcrafted. My journey into design started simply with a want for gear that I just couldn’t find out there. Travel and adventure is a big priority of mine, and so designing my own gear was an exciting hobby, and it soon became my full-time job. I wanted simple minimalist goods that would perform well in the wild, and age nicely. OCHRE handcrafted was launched in 2015, and this has been one of the most rewarding and meaningful adventures of my life. Thank you for all your support!
