BÃ¶hme was founded by Vivien and Fernanda BÃ¶hme, sisters from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil who immigrated to the United States as young girls. With the usual struggles of an immigrant family, work was inevitable from an early age. Their strong work ethic, dedication, and passion for success lead to them opening BÃ¶hme in 2006 at just 23 & 24 years old. BÃ¶hme is lead by Vivienâ€™s mind for business as CEO and Fernandaâ€™s eye for design as Creative Director. Today we have store locations across the western US and employ over 200 women.
