We dream big. We want to make the world a greener, more sustainable and more colourful place, and we are not alone. We celebrate all these women who, in their own ways, are working towards a better common future.
We reinterpret classics by adding a dash of colour and originality, because we love a piece we can keep for years and that also makes us stand out. All the prints of our dresses have been designed especially for us by the very talented textile designer Colombe Hurbault (Cohu). We also focus a lot on making our pieces extra comfortable - aren't we all busy working towards a better version of ourselves? We need our clothes to get out of the way, by being comfortable and functional.
The story behind Belle Ombre
Bel Ombre is a beautiful coastal village in Mauritius, where Sandhya is from. Belle Ombre also means 'beautiful shadow' in French. And that's our goal : to leave a positive mark on our planet, inspire towards a more sustainable life and serve women who are striving to cast their own beautiful shadow on our world.
The entire supply chain of our dresses has been designed with its carbon footprint in mind. The design is made in France, the printing in Germany, the prototyping in the UK and the production in a small atelier in Portugal. We only use certified organic cotton and certified dyes.
We take classics and put our own twist on them. We believe in a style that goes beyond micro trends and which is comfortable, allowing for a daily wear that lasts for years.
Eco fabrics and certified inks
We only use certified organic cotton* to promote a natural and sustainable farming practice that is both respectful of farmers and our skin. Our dyes are non-toxic for the environment.
Made in Europe
Every step of the design and production process is made in EU to limit our carbon footprint and to have a better control over our supply chain. The cotton fabric of our black dresses are weaved and dyed in France.
*GOTS certification : The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
