Osklen is a Brazilian ready-to-wear brand founded by Oskar Metsavaht that produces high-end fashion that integrates ethics and sustainability to its design. Osklen partners closely with Instituto-E, a non-profit organization dedicating to promoting sustainable human development in Brazil.

Osklen, Instituto-E and the Ethical Fashion Initiative have partnered working together to develop products in Haiti. The first Osklen collection, E-Ayiti, launched in 2014 and was made by Haitian artisans using recycled materials such as metal and electrical wiring.
