Carlos Alberto Rezende Sobral – nowadays Presidente and main designer of Sobral – was motivated in the mid 1970's to expand his jewellery designs to include a new material. Resin.
An industry in the back of a small farm in a small town in Brazil was how the Sobral brand started.
By 1982 Carlos Sobral traveled to Paris in search of new consumers. He conquered the hard won European admiration and opened the way to a flow of regular exportations. The sales of the company smashed all targets and reached 1 million dollars in 1988.
Sobral remains one of the most successful designers in Brazil and maintains global recognition as a producer of sophisticated and hip resin pieces.
Regularly seen in high fashion magazines around the world and sold in exclusive European boutiques, the Sobral range is for the consumer with a love for design and individuality.
Sobral uses recycled plastics to produce the resin compounds so his designs can be viewed as environmentally friendly.
