Montago is a combination of Montana and Otago. Otago is a region in New Zealand that we fell in love with while living there for a year. It reminded us a lot of Montana’s massive alpine mountains with semi-arid grasslands in the foothills. Both lie close to 45º parallel N and S respectively which lends to similar climates, but to us it brought an immediate feeling of home. Growing up in the foothills of mountainous landscapes, we felt completely comfortable in this region even though we were on the opposite side of the world, and that’s exactly what we want our customers to feel when they walk into our space. A sense of home away from home no matter how far you’ve come.
