Islands of the Heavenly Sea

Good day mate! Throw another shrimp on the barbe. I'm a fan of Hawaii lifestyle and that's why I live here, but I also love the Aussie lifestyle and designers originating from there. Organik is now sold in the land down under. We just shipped our second delivery to Islands of the Heavenly Sea in Brisbane on the Sunshine Coast. We also have an Australian distributor and you'll find Organik at Ellia boutiques in Brisbane in two weeks.
I can't wait to surf some frothy waves in Australia and take a bite of your vegemite sandwich. Speaking of vegemite, here's some Men At Work singing about Aussie life.

Hilo Rain

It's been a while since the sleepy town of Hilo has seen rain like this. The lightning that was on display this evening was nothing short of spectacular and the constant rumble of thunder in the distance was quite soothing. The sky is glowing orange from the combination of the low level clouds and street lights. As much as this is supposed to be a storm, I find it quite soothing and relaxing. Hilo rain is always a welcoming comfort for me...reminds me I'm in paradise.

Anchors: Bamboo Fitted Cap

We're dropping anchors with our new bamboo fitted caps as part of our Sirens & Sailors collection. The bamboo caps feature our newest logo and are available in navy with yellow logo or black with grey logo.

Bamboo is a renewable grass that grows quickly and has great natural qualities like being breathable so your head doesn't sweat and moisture absorbing so you don't stink.

Our bamboo shirts employ a blend of 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton to keep you cooler in Hawaii or during the hot summer months on the East Coast. I like riding my bicycle wearing a bamboo shirt because I don't feel hot and sweaty. Plus, my bag won't smell like an old gym locker after I forget about it for a week.

Globe City Cruiser

Here's my new mode of transportation in the new Honolulu city life I now live. I bike to the office, etown showroom and to some of our Organik retail accounts. My Globe Daily single speed is a 60's Dutch inspired design. The bicycle has a handy front mounted basket to haul Organik merchandise to stores or serve as a grocery getter at the farmer's market. I had the Bike Shop install a surf rack so I can avoid parking meters and the hassle of finding parking stalls on the South Shore of Oahu.
