Ottilia is a soon to be open brick and mortar shop in Arlington Heights that will serve as a platform for non-toxic skincare, beauty and home goods.
At Ottilia, we aim to curate a warm and beautiful space that provides non-toxic skincare and handcrafted home goods to our clients. What we sell is very much what we would purchase ourselves. Ottilia supports a variety of brands and holds a special place for small artists and makers.
The name Ottilia honors family, more specifically, Aunt Tillie, whose full name was Ottilia Mathilda. She lived with her sister, Maggie, who owned a bar in Elmhurst by the train station. Like Aunt Tillie, Ottilia is German meaning, "fortunate heroine".
