Who are we ?


Welcome to Ôbaba
WE ARE the creator and distributor of the XXL WIND RESISTANT beach blanket

Ôbaba is a truly innovative product. Two years of research went into creating a product that offers the best in design, quality and practicality… A product that meets the needs of its customers and realises the dreams of its creators (Philippe and Mario).
The ÔBABA brand was created in April 2012, along with its first product: The XXL beach blanket.
ÔBABA is French in its creation and fabrication – the designer hails from Lille, the cotton is woven in the Vosges region specially for us, before being dyed in the Lyon area. The entire process is carried out by small, independent companies who are concerned only with quality products whilst respecting the environment.
Traditional towels are either too small, too thick, always wet or even worse – all three, and anything else tends to fly away in even the smallest breeze.
Ôbaba’s goal is an ambitious one: to help people enjoy the beach more.
Ôbaba wants to revolutionise your beach experience with the XXL beach blanket – and you to share the experience with family (ÔBABA XXL+) and with your partner (ÔBABA XXL). Also you can enjoy on your own with the ÔBABA SOLO model, launched in 2015.
For its latest collection Ôbaba proposes 13 colours. ÔBABA has launched 2 "capsule collections" (SAINT JAMES and DARCO), one printed limited editions (IBIZA) and the new star product for the summer: "Le BIG" (8.5 sqm), the largest beach blanket in the world. Each annual collection is unique and the number of pieces is limited.
ÔBABA has always been environmental friendly. ÔBABA manufacturing and distribution are respectful of the environmental and social standards. ÔBABA’s target is to produce zero waste. Please find in our webpage our eco-friendly commitments. We work with family-run businesses and our products are distributed in independent stores, mainly located in the city centre. The fabric used to make the ôbabas is woven exclusively for the ÔBABA brand. In order not to waste any fabric, we use the remains of fabric to make accessories. We use the large pieces of fabric to manufacture XXL bags and small backpacks. With the smallest pieces, we make hair bands. All these products are handmade by an independent seamstress in the north of France.
