How do I know which size to choose ?
Unlike what you often hear about leather, Obso rings do not « stretch” because they have an internal reinforcement to avoid any deformation. Therefore it is very important to measure your size precisely with the appropriate tool, like a ring sizer. If you don’t know you size, you can go to a jewelry store to measure your size for free in a precise way. Always feel free to write me and I will help you.
If you purchase a jewelry for a surprise gift, I advise you to pick an ajdustable design.
Which materials do you use for Obso designs ?
Obso, as a fashion brand, question the classical production channel. Aware of the disastrous waste occurring inside the leather industry, I made the decision of using exclusively recycled leather: residual off-cutts, piece from obsolete finished products, processing wastes, unsaleable defective skins…
Reworked and upgraded, I offer a second life to these materials within my jewels, and thus act for a more respectful and sustainable fashion.
I have vegan customers , they do understand my upcycling process and love the ethic of the brand, so they wear Obso collections. However, I do not offer vegan pieces, cause I did not find so far a satisfaying material meeting all my requirements speaking of sustainability, solidity, beauty, breathability and especially which does not contain plastic, I am absolutely against it for obvious environmental reasons. If you can provide me with innovative samples, I will be very happy to give it it a try.

What does Obso mean ?
Obso comes from « obsolete », a poetic word to me. It echoes to retro objets, which do not work anymore but have an incredible style, and for that reason we remain very attached to them. Hence, Obso accessories must have meaning and summon memories. Obso promotes Slow Fashion, where quality, authenticity and exclusivity are key values.
Who are you and what does Obso stand for ?
I am Laurine, craftswoman behind the brand Obso. I wish to bring something new to the world of jewelry with pieces presenting unique shapes and textures organized around a poetic brand universe. Obso world is not only jewelry, it spreads to any kind of body ornament, like gloves, harness, bag. I am the only being who create and make Obso designs, I work hard to bring news, limited editions, as much as possible, and bring to our daily life a bit of dream and unconventional beauty.
