City Otter

A brand by Diploma of Leadership and Management student; Gabriele Vaineikyte

City Otter is a brand focusing on pedestrians’ safety by offering handmade reflective scrunchies.

My goal is not only to create fashionable accessories and also to educate people about the importance of wearing reflectors.
Ever since I was a child, I recognized the importance of wearing reflectors. However, it always seemed like there weren’t enough options available. I tried my best to wear reflectors but over time they vanished from my outfit. When walking in the unlit street or crossing the road after the sun was down I kept questioning myself – why did it happen and what can I do to change it.
The answer was quite obvious – there is no doubt that reflectors are extremely important, but a rare person is able to choose a reflector that he likes and suits him from the available offers these days. While style should not be the sole factor in deciding between safety and aesthetics, we have to acknowledge that it does influence our choices, even subconsciously. To protect people and help not only pedestrians but also drivers, I created City Otter. City Otter offers handmade reflective scrunchies designed not only to be worn as a hair accessory but also to be worn as a wristband.
