... it feels like home
We are very happy that we can offer our products under our house brand POMPELMOES.
The name Pompelmoes actually comes from a small village of Pamplemousses, located in the north of the island of Mauritius. This is where Melissa grew up and lived most of her life before marrying Martijn and then moving to the Netherlands.
Melissa's mother still runs a tailor's and clothing repair shop in Mauritius to this day. Melissa gained many of her skills while helping her mother during summer vacations. With these skills and her experience in e-commerce, the Pompelmoes brand (and the webshop) was born, a dream come true!
Because Pamplemousses is the cradle of Mauritius history and a place that both Martijn and Melissa cherish, we really wanted to make POMPELMOES a brand that feels like home. The packaging, the design, the choice of fabric, they are all brought together to recreate a sense of cosiness and wholeness.
