Over The Ocean II features a small selection of well-made items from America. Women and childrens clothing, toys and items for the home that are designed and crafted with passion, care and love for our children and the environment.
Over The Ocean II is founded by me, Birgit, with the support of my husband Raul, our daughter Milla and my sister-in-law Mareike. The idea arose from our personal story – we moved from Munich to San Francisco in 2013 where we founded Over The Ocean, a concept-store for European Design for families with the aim to share what we love from our old home with the families in the U.S. After living in California for several years and meeting some amazing makers here, I felt the urge to also share this new influence in my life and bring these wonderful American labels to Europe.
I was not only impressed by the creativity and crafting skills of these independent makers I got to know in the U.S. but also by their sense of community, how they are supporting each other in their vision and aim to create something beautiful and valuable.
Over The Ocean II displays what I love about America – passionate people who care for our world and create beautiful goods, made to last. I hope you will enjoy it.
