When founder Oorbee Roy faced a near-death experience on 9/11, she realized one simple thing: life was short and having a successful corporate career was not the answer to living a meaningful life. For Oorbee, that meant bringing beauty into the world. She made a lifelong commitment to contribute to society in a meaningful way, through both her creative endeavours and impactful human connections.
After leaving her high-stress job on Wall Street in 2002, Oorbee began working with ethically sourced artisans she met while visiting her ancestral home of Kolkata, India to reinvigorate Alpona, a dying artform she learned from her mother.
Om Home® believes any impact, however small, is meaningful.

Om Home® is proud to support the community:
As a Toronto based business, Om Home® answered the call for #MGH1000masks, donating enough fabric to make approximately 250,000 masks and other PPE for Michael Garron Hospital and other local organizations.
We secured 1000 masks for essential workers at a local grocery store, a local doctor’s office, and a large food manufacturing plant based in Toronto and Montreal.
As a skateboarding family, we continue to support the local community by donating time, money, and materials to community sponsored events.
Through our close connection with Dunya Harvest, we have organized food drives, baskets for refugees, and donations to local community centres.
Regent Park Women's Collective
We worked with low-income women in Regent Park to make quilts that provided them with an independent (secret) source of income.
Baljit & Bahene Women's Collective
We collaborated with women in the slums of Kolkata, who earned money for the first time, and felt empowered to improve their lives and the lives of their children.
