Our Story



Thank you for visiting the Ole Originals online store!

Many people ask where the name Ole came from ---> for the record it's OLEEE not OLAY! Ole was the nickname of my grandpa Olof from Sweden. My parents gave me Ole as my middle name to pay homage to our family’s past. I felt it was an appropriate name for my company which is partly inspired by history. Before I created Ole in 2008 I found it very difficult to find shirts that were tastefully designed, nicely fitted and of good quality. I also didn't want to be a walking billboard.

I felt there was a void in the t-shirt industry and saw this as an opportunity to create something better! All of our tees are limited editions with a retro look and soft feel. Our graphics are meticulously designed and silk-screened by hand in beautiful Vancouver BC, Canada! Our graphics are inspired by travel, culture, wild life, and the places we love.

Thanks for stopping by!
