Hola, I’m Maria Isabel Ibarra
I’m the founder of OML Fashion and OML Consulting .
OML Fashion is a Company.
We give a new life to discarded clothing ,waste and materials.
We do this because we care about our planet and want to reduce CO2 emissions.
In the beginning of 2020, just before the start of the global
pandemic, I won a sustainable challenge from the Dutch
National Railway Company: they had refurbished one of their
intercity trains and had all kinds of materials available
that normally go to waste incineration. Entrepreneurs were
asked to come up with sustainable solutions for their waste.
I submitted an idea for the old train seat covers (textile
covers with synthetic leather). The idea was to make
(shopping)bags and Spanish espadrilles (footwear) from this
material. I won the competition, received a small financial
contribution and have now been allowed to sell some products
to some hundred Dutch National Railway employees. I have now
become more involved in circular entrepreneurship and am
seeing a lot of opportunities! Today I am a proud designer / Consulting of circulair economy.
