Woodlike Ocean

Woodlike Ocean is a brand that represents those favorite memories of endless summer at the beach, sun-kissed skin and salty hair. The swimwear brand is committed to creating healthy oceans also thanks to the use of our ECONYL® regenerated yarn as the main ingredient for their textiles creations.



A sustainable swimwear label created by Sonja and Mauricio Palma, wife-husband duo, partners, both sharing a deep love for the ocean, exotic beaches, and a healthy lifestyle. My wife Sonja was born in Hamburg, Germany. She learned at an early age the tailor and pattern maker profession, creating high fashion collections for a renown German textile group. After a while, she took the road less traveled and spent half of her life commuting between Oahu’s North Shore, Bali, and Australia. The water became her second home and she soon realized she couldn’t find a modern bikini piece that would fit with her athletic needs. She explored new fits and began hand sewing bikinis for her own personal use. Soon after people asked where they could get those pieces - an idea was born. Sonja now brings her creative vision, meticulous technical eye and love for the ocean in the Woodlike Ocean product and brand. Woodlike Ocean donates 1% of every sale to the "Healthy Seas Initiative".
