Over The Ocean highlights the best of European design with a handpicked selection of children's clothing, toys, and home goods. We are drawn to contemporary yet timeless pieces made with care and skill that are meant to stand the test of time and play. The style is simple and casual with some European formality. A lovingly curated choice of classic, beautiful, and useful things for the modern family.
Over The Ocean is founded and run by me, Birgit, with the support of my husband Raul and our daughter Milla. Originally from Munich, we moved to San Francisco in 2013. I founded Over The Ocean to share with the families here, what I love from my old home. Kidswear brands that I have known since Milla is born, other well made and useful items that are part of our family life but also inspiring ideas, places and people in my muse portraits and blog.
After living in California for several years and meeting some amazing makers here, I felt the urge to share these wonderful American labels with the families in Europe. This is how the idea of Over The Ocean II came up. My small selection of well made American goods will soon be available in our sister online store based in Germany, run with the support of my sister-in-law Mareike.
We are a small, family run business that was created in an effort to share with others what inspires our own life. I hope you will enjoy it.
