Much love to all those who participated in the Canggu Beach Cleanup on March 20th. IndoSole is previleged to have Canggu as our home base in Bali since the locals are always glowing with stoke. If you have ever surfed Canggu, you know how well the left and the right crank; however the heavy rains drain garbage through the rivermouth and into the ocean. Let us all remember that beaches do need an extra hand from time to time. Shout out to IndoSole's sole surfers Jun and Karbit...both in the ChangguSurfCommunity photo! Here's the cleanup article by IndoSurfLife.com
Our good friends over at Live Agape have spearheaded a marketing campaign called "Sole Surfers" which focuses on young people who have positive influence in their communities. The first piece goes out to Gede "JUN" Juniartha who is a young Bali surfer with a dream. Jun's goal is to influence his friends to get an education, preserve local beaches, and to also support IndoSole's efforts of re-purposing trash in Bali. If you know of a "Sole Surfer" in your community...please introduce him/her to us...firstname.lastname@example.org Sole Surfer - JUN from IndoSole on Vimeo.
IndoSole is on TV! Our marketing guru - Jeremy Urone was interviewed at GreenFest-SF back in November and the piece aired on FOX bay area news this past weekend. Thanks to ECO TV and GreenFest for spreading the Aloha. Enjoy *Look for the IndoSole story to begin at 3:05*
We have a showroom in SoCal! IndoSole is proud to announce yet another step in brand legitimacy. The Indo Showroom is a groovy little spot which will function as a place to show our products, a satellite office, and party pad. This location is no stranger to brand building and carries an impressive legacy which IndoSole aims to follow. The showroom / office was the former HQ for Ocean Minded who is a brand we look up to. The founders of OM were generous to pass on the reigns of their former office to IndoSole. There are numerous influential companies on the block such as: Rainbow sandals, Dewey Webber surfboards, Cole Surfboards, Stance socks and more. Our goal is to create a rad vibe and shoot the breeze with anyone stopping by. Stay tuned for our BBQ party agenda this spring/summer....In the meantime if you want to swing by and check out some sandals, contact San Clemente local and IndoSole Vibe Creator - Kai Paul: email@example.com -K.P.
January is the busiest month for sandal production in Bali as its always a hustle to get our products made quickly and at the highest quality possible. IndoSole's rookie of the year - Jeremy Urone took a time-out in the workshop and bonded with our craftsmen and women and rewarded their hard work with gifts from our San Francisco clothing drive back on October 22. The goodie bin contained Tshirts, jeans, sweatshirts and some slick Mtn. Dew Sunglasses. Now our crew is styling while they crank out our best batch of sandals yet! Thanks to our hard working Bali crew and to all in the USA who have contributed to the Indo goodie bin. Happy workers make Happy Shoes - Big Thanks to Paola Loves Shades for sunglass donations
The IndoSole crew would like to thank everyone for all the support in our first year of business. 2010 was our foundation year and we are so appreciative of those who bought sandals this past year. We are looking forward to big things in 2011. Happy New Year and Selamat Tahun Baru! Atlas Skateboard shop in San Mateo, CA encourages kids everywhere to get out and skateboard. Skating is becoming more popular amongst kids in Bali but most cannot afford a new skateboard setup. So, Mike and the crew at Atlas have kicked down some skateboards and clothing to be delivered to Bali. Thanks guys! Check out Atlas Skateboard Shop: http://atlasskateboarding.com/
