Cali Love

I survived Coachella, visited friends in San Diego, went to cool spots throughout the town and met fun people. On Thursday, Brian and I traveled to San Francisco for our Sirens and Sailors party that went down on Saturday night at Terroir. We ate at amazing restaurants, drank prohibition style cocktails at some renowned bars,  rode bikes around the city and met more rad people. Kevin, our Big Island / San Francisco friend, gave a Brian, Mark and I a tour around San Francisco.

Hawaii Ocean Expo and Therapy

We had a super busy weekend with the Hawaii Ocean Expo, hosting our Big Island Ambassador: Abe Shouse and Paddle Hawaii, a Whole Foods fashion show, Kokua For Japan event and the Organik debuting at Therapy boutique. I needed the rest before our trip to California starting tomorrow. More pics from on the road coming soon!

Sea Glass Inspiration

Thank you to our Facebook fans for choosing the colors for our summer collection of women's bamboo and organic cotton fashion forward t-shirts: Sirens and Sailors. We're inspired by nature so we chose a sea glass color palette to support our mission to preserve green and natural life. The winning colors chosen by our fans are marine blue, sea green, coral and vintage black.

I've spent many hours traveling to remote spots on the Big Island of Hawaii in search of nature's treasures. There are so many shapes, sizes and colors of sea glass that wash up on the different colored sandy beaches. It's so beautiful to see the contrast of sea glass washed up on black or green colored sand. Sea glass becomes round, smooth and has a frosted appearance as it spends more time in the ocean.

Our cut and sew bamboo t-shirts will be dyed in the sea glass inspired colors using low-impact dyes which have fewer chemicals and require less rinse water that helps protect our environment. Look for these shirts to be released in May with original artwork screenprinted by hand so no two shirts are alike while using water-based inks for a soft hand, vintage look and feel.

We're always trying to make our customers and friends happy by listening to your concerns. Thank you for growing with us as we help make this world a better place in our own creative way.

First Friday!

Waking up after five hours of sleep to update you on First Friday before I go for a morning surf. BWareville had a grand opening party last night with a great group of people, home brewed beer from the north shore, and Root Hub playing irie acoustic music. BWareville houses BWare, 1979 and Organik. Check it out at 1165 Smith Street in downtown Honolulu.
The after party happened down the street at Next Door with our own VIP room with DJ Matt Ratt. The Jumpoffs and the Deadbeats rocked the main room.
