ObieWear produces student designed, Oberlin themed apparel and accessories. Since its inception, ObieWear has created designs that have been produced and distributed by the Oberlin College Bookstore. This year, our goal is to become an autonomous, self-sustained student group by creating and selling our own apparel. By becoming an independent student group, we will have more creative freedom to produce designs that better reflect unique Oberlin experiences, targeted towards both current students and alumni. This grant provides us the preliminary funding we need to pursue our short-term projects for this year including production through an independent distributor and promotion and marketing of our items.
