Indosole is proud to announce a big step in our small backyard of San Francisco. We have grown our operation from the grassroots of a home based office and backyard shed, to a real-deal office/warehouse space in the heart of San Francisco's surf community. In partnership with San Franpsycho, we have opened a retail shop offering apparel, jewelry, accessories, and of course Indosole footwear. With 2500 sq. feet of workspace, we are also running our warehouse and HQ at this location. 3830 Noriega St. has been the long-time home of a Korean Church. The building itself holds a special charm and warmth that has changed hands to our handsome/beautiful crew and we have re-branded it as "The Church of Surf." Please stop by and say hi and pick up a San Franpsycho T-shirt and some new kicks!
Spencer made another awesome video for the Reprocessing series. This time he made shelves for our San Clemente showroom out of salvaged wood. Watch it to learn more about this process, check out the end product, and see how clever our Spencer is. Reprocess: Salvaged Shelving from IndoSole on Vimeo. Ps. Are we friends on facebook yet?
This video is super rad! Shwood uses old skate decks to create sunglasses. This is a great example of how we can take old materials and make new things that are just as interesting, unique, and nice looking. We like the idea of re-purposing used materials to create a totally new design. Sweet! Experiment No. 1 - Skateboard Shades from Shwood Eyewear on Vimeo. A little more about Shwood "Based in Portland, Oregon Shwood creates handcrafted wooden eyewear using fine exotic hardwoods. Shwoods in-house manufacturing process merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship to create a timeless art form. Every step from veneering and precision lens cutting, to shaping and finishing is conducted in our own Portland-based workshop to promise an entirely handcrafted eyewear piece.

We at IndoSole believe in giving old things a new utility...a new life. Our passion is to scavenge and source stuff that had a previous use. Then, re-create and re-purpose that material into something else. This time we sourced and re-purposed masonite from an old skate ramp. Now, its a sign at IndoSole's office in San Clemente, CA. Check out the video! Reprocessed: Indo Sign from IndoSole on Vimeo. Acted, produced, and edited by: IndoSole boy wonder - Spencer Sheehan
We'll see you here this weekend right?! Not only are we big fans of rad street fairs here at Indo, but we happen to love events that support handmade goods done in small batches. Indie Mart does a great job at supporting local, community driven products and the people that make them. IndoSole strives to do the same thing by supporting local artisans in both the Bay Area and Indonesia. We're stoked to spend our Sunday here and hope to see you there.
Welcome to our new website! We have worked long and hard to bring you a site that represents the spirit of IndoSole. Not only can you buy our products here but you will get first glances at new designs in the pipeline. The new Indolife page will contain blog posts that convey the real Baliaway from the tourist view that we most often see. We care deeply for Bali and the people of Indonesia as well as the environment and the process of making products by hand. We invite you to come back often for news about Bali, art, lifestyle, surfing, and many other topics. As always, thank you for your support. Love, IndoSole
Although we're not directly linked together, we like to think that IndoSole and Deus are a collective that share the same stoke for motorbike exploration, music, art and surfing. This crew brings heaps of enthusiasm to our shared town of Canggu, Bali and IndoSole always feels the reprecussions of their hosted parties. Mega shout out to our Bali wrecking crew over at the Temple of Enthusiasm! Deus Dress Up Drags from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
