It all began with a stroke of fate: Océane Tobé-Loriot's mother was diagnosed with skin cancer. She was no longer allowed to expose her body to the sun at all. But how does one protect oneself against the influence of the sun? This question is becoming more and more important in view of increased heat waves and global warming, and which also poses real problems for many allergy sufferers.

Tobé-Loriot says: "Very few people know that a T-shirt hardly protects us. Wearing a T-shirt is equivalent to UV protection of 10. The ultraviolet rays simply pass through the fabric." To have clothes with a UV protection value UPF of 50, which is recommended today, many turn to highly chemically refined synthetic materials. This is exactly what the young Frenchwoman did not want and went in search of a laboratory with the goal of finding fabrics that are sustainable, responsible, provide optimal sun protection and are comfortable to wear.

The weave and density of the natural fibers play a crucial role in her goal to protect. As does an anti-UV filter finish that blocks UV radiation.  The wearer is thus protected for the whole day. The fabrics used come from Italy, Switzerland and Spain and are processed in France and Eastern Europe. To avoid overproduction, all orders at Ombrelle are for pre-orders. The dresses, skirts, trousers and T-shirts retail prices range from €65 to €165. One can also order a parasol from Ombrelle.
