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. Our giant, oversized beach towels are also thin and light.
ÔBABA’s goal is an ambitious one: to help people enjoy the beach more. We want to improve your beach experience with our XXL beach blanket. We want you to share the space at the beach with your friends (Le BIG, 8.5 sqm), with your family (XXL+, 5 sqm) and with your partner (XXL, 3.5 sqm). And even if you go to the beach alone you can enjoy on your own with the SOLO model (2.15m x 1m).
For its 2023 collection ÔBABA proposes 14 colours and 4 sizes. On the top of the new ÔBABA collection, we propose two "capsule collections" (SAINT JAMES and DARCO), a blue printed limited re-edition of the IBIZA model (the IBIZA 2.0 series) and a new product in co-branding with PETITS CADORS, the French cushions brand.
ÔBABA has already been revolutionizing the beaches for 10 years, amazing!
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 scrunchies. All these products are handmade by an independent seamstress in the north of France.
