About Del Mar Y El Sol Collection

As a direct response to the crisis in Puerto Rico, we decided to create a limited apparel collection to raise funds for the 

Maria: Puerto Rico Real-Time Recovery Fund managed by ConPRmetidos and Foundation for Puerto Rico

As Puerto Ricans, born and raised in the island (Karielys from Vega Baja – Angel from Fajardo,) we found it as an opportunity to help in some capacity.

About the Name: Del Mar Y El Sol

The name of this collection was inspired by the words in Puerto Rico's national anthem, "La Borinqueña" by Manuel Fernández Juncos, 1903. Read the lyrics below or give it a listen here

La tierra de Borinquen
donde he nacido yo
es un jardín florido
de mágico primor.

Un cielo siempre nítido
le sirve de dosel.
Y dan arrullos plácidos
las olas a sus pies.

Cuando a sus playas llegó Colón;
Exclamó lleno de admiración;
"Oh!, oh!, oh!,
Esta es la linda tierra
que busco yo."

Es Borinquen la hija,
la hija del mar y el sol,
Del mar y el sol,
Del mar y el sol,
Del mar y el sol,
Del mar y el sol.

The land of Borinquen
where I was born
is a flowery garden
of magical beauty.

A constantly clear sky
serves as its canopy.
And placid lullabies are sung
by the waves at its feet.

When at her beaches Columbus arrived;
he exclaimed full of admiration
"Oh! Oh! Oh!
This is the beautiful land
that I seek."

Borinquen is the daughter,
the daughter of the sea and the sun.
Of the sea and the sun,
Of the sea and the sun,
Of the sea and the sun,
Of the sea and the sun.
