Gabriela, and Alexandra, co-founders of Thalassa, are childhood friends who grew up in the coastal city of Lima, Peru. They come from diverse backgrounds; Gabriela is Brazilian and Alexandra is Greek-Peruvian. Most of their inspiration comes from their culture and love for the ocean; a place they have grown up in for most of their life. Thus, they came together to celebrate the ocean, movement and crafts. Hence, THLSA was born.
Thalassa Movement values people by preferring workshops over sweatshops, product by designing for longevity, and planet by producing locally and source ethically.
