The idea of starting my own swimwear brand has been with me for many years. I was supposed to be born a summer baby but came a bit early. But ever since I was little summer has always been my favorite season. I love everything about it. And my dream one day is to live somewhere where I can live in a bikini all year around. But I decided to make Ombreas a reality when I, a couple of years ago was told by a huge bikini brand that they didn’t want to collaborate with me since I was ”too big” for their brand and image. But there is no such thing as a bikini body. Our aim at Ombreas is to make swimwear that makes everyone comfortable but still having the environment in mind. Ombreas is here to make you feel fabulous by the pool and on the beach.
Each piece is created with the environment in mind and we want your pieces to feel timeless and last for a long time.
All of our pieces are ethically produced and manufactured in Portugal. I chose Portugal since Portuguese factories follow European laws and policies regarding labour relations practices. The factory has been chosen carefully to ensure a high quality standard while having the environment in mind. Portugal is well known for their quality workmanship and respecting working conditions.
When working with fashion and garment production sustainability is a very important aspect. At Ombreas we try to make our products as sustainable as possible. We work with recycled materials, no plastic bags, no plastic hang tags and no excess paper. We try to be as kind as possible to our home and planet.
Just as we are
The photos we use on our website and social medias will never be retouched, we won’t edit any bodies, pimples or clothing. What you see is what you get.
We can’t wait for you to wear and live in Ombreas.
Nicole and Ombreas.
