Ocean Apparel Company Mokarran Launches U.S.-Based Online Store

Mokarran, an eco-friendly clothing brand dedicated to ocean lovers, was launched in French Polynesia three years ago and now has a store dedicated to the U.S. market.

The image of a shark was the obvious choice for Mokarran’s logo as it’s a natural reference to the brand’s commitment to the oceans and especially to marine life.

The company’s name comes from “Sphyrna Mokarran,” the scientific name for the great hammerhead shark, a mythical animal for divers, combining power and elegance.

A passion for wildlife led Mélo Véron and Vincent Truchet to scuba diving, and consequently to co-found Mokarran.

Initially distributed exclusively in French Polynesia in February 2017, the two launched an online store,, allowing the brand to open up to the rest of the world.

Because the USA is the third country in terms of visitors to the website, Mokarran this year created an American version of its online store —
