Oliver Cabell Origin Story
Twenty-seven year old Scott Gabrielson was studying for an MBA in entrepreneurship at Oxford when the realization struck him that high fashion had become inordinately expensive. Gabrielson saw firsthand in Asian factories that leather goods, which retailed at over $1000 (and were described as ‘made in Italy’), were being glued and stitched together by workers in cramped conditions not earning the money they should. Gabrielson knew there had to be a better way to produce and sell high-quality products that consumers felt priced out of, and set out to create an honest alternative that was transparent in pricing.
Since establishing Oliver Cabell, Gabrielson’s top business priority has been to partner with trusted factories. He develops strong long-term manufacturer relationships to continually produce the best styles and products for consumers to wear for years to come, all while ensuring the working conditions of their employees are above average. With so many fashion companies trying to take advantage of workers and consumers, Oliver Cabell’s transparency and ethical production stand out.
