WHAT'S THE NAME?

To the Taino people who lived here long before the
Europeans came, this place was Xamayca: land of water
and wood.

To the Spanish conquistadores after 1494, this place was
Las Chorreras: the waterfalls.

To the English who overtook the Spanish colony in 1655
(and who misunderstood the Spanish name), this place
became Ocho Rios: eight rivers.

To the slaves of African descent who gained their freedom
in 1834 - and to the generations of their children and
grandchildren who established a peaceful fishing village
here - this place is Ochie.

Taking its name from this precious spot, the Ochie brand is
inspired by all of the islands scattered like emeralds across
the aquamarine expanse of the Caribbean Sea.

OCHIE IS CLASSIC.
OCHIE IS SOULFUL.
OCHIE IS SENSUAL.
OCHIE IS BOLD.
OCHIE IS JOYFUL.
OCHIE IS BEAUTIFUL.

ABOUT THE BRAND

The Ochie label represents the heart of contemporary but timeless
Caribbean beach style.

Ochie is fashioned for the women who are born in the islands, the
women who visit the islands, and the women who embody the spirit of
the islands - wherever around the world we may wander.

Made by hand for large and small, for curves and angles, for soft
mounds and flat planes, and for all of the infinite ways that all
women’s bodies embody our own perfect beauty. Ochie looks
gorgeous, and feels even better.

Combining perfect fit with classic design, fabric sourced from
European mills, lush custom prints and effortless handwoven
accessories to create unique looks for the surf and the sand.

Ochie is mi soon come. Soon, but not too soon. No rush, no hurry.
Don’t wait up. Sit back, you’ll see. Take your time. Have another.
Sing it again, and again, and again.

Ochie’s palette evokes white sand beaches and pristine turquoise
bays, the emerald green hills that embrace them, the brilliant native
flora and fauna, and the endless blue expanse of the sky above -
bright as day, deep as night.

Hana Lloyd, Designer and Creative Director.

Born in Trinidad, and raised between Trinidad and Jamaica, Hana is
Caribbean through and through, but she spent fifteen years working
as a pilot for major international airlines, and from the perspective
that distance and experience offer, Hana recognized the unique
preciousness of the islands of her birth. She saw how the interwoven
stories of natives, Europeans and Africans have created a diverse
culture without match, and in a place of unparalleled physical beauty
and generous climate. She has since dedicated herself to the design
and creation of the Ochie label, born and bred in the islands, to
represent these beloved places in custom-designed forms, curated
fabric, artisanal construction and bespoke fit.
