Sūmatoo was founded in 2016 with the intention of encouraging young girls to love themselves, discover their potential, and realize that the sky is the limit. We want to give girls a fun and fashionable way to express themselves. Our Sūmatoo pieces are layering pieces that can be mixed and matched to create new looks. We are more than a brand, we are a movement!! Join the movement!!
Who is the Sūmatoo Girl?
She is smart, she loves school, and loves to read. She is an athlete. She is an artist. She may be a girly girl but, she isn't afraid to get down and dirty. She can go from sweats and sneakers to a dress and shoes in a heartbeat. Her fashion sense is classy with an edge. She is a sweetheart with a little bit of sass!
What on earth is a Sumatoo, you ask?
A sumatoo is actually fruit from South America, specifically Guyana. It is in the same fruit family as a passion fruit. At first bite it is sweet, then you taste a sour tang, before it gets sweet again. Just like our Sūmatoo Girl, sweet with a little bit of sass!!!
What is the "I Am Sūmatoo" movement?
Sūmatoo is not just a brand, it's a movement. A matter of fact, it's just who you are. If our Sūmatoo Girl description sounds like you, then you are a Sūmatoo. You embody what we are about. You aren't afraid to be yourself and stand out in a crowd. You have your own unique sense of style.
