Mission & values

As a corporate group, we provide resources to facilitate the long-term growth of our brands and companies, while contributing to the social and economic dynamics in the countries where we operate. 

Creativity is at the heart of everything we do, passion is the secret behind our constant pursuit of excellence. That’s why we approach things differently, create a culture of innovation, and consistently inspire and cultivate creative minds. 


Fostering Creativity

OTB is consistently committed to inspiring and fostering creativity. Our group believes in the potential of young generations and prides itself on funding initiatives that discover and award creative talents around the world.

For example, ITS – International Talent Support, an international design contest conceived in 2002; ANDAM (National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts), one of the most prestigious fashion awards created in 1989, providing emerging designers with not only cash prizes, but also strategic and business mentorship.
