Clothing company in Hawaii inspired by the loss of a brother. Twin brothers who grew up surfing out at the Twin Islands
Here's a video clip from a local news channel...http://www.kitv.com/Made-In-Hawaii-Twin-Islands-Surf-Co/-/8906042/5615096/-/bl8uir/-/index.html
About. Located just off the coast of Kailua Beach on the windward side of Oahu, the Twin Islands (or Mokulua's) have been recognized by watermen from all over the world as one of Hawaii's truely unique ocean environments. My twin bother Pete and I grew up in Kailua and surfed out at the islands every chance we could get. Two years following Pete's tragic airplane crash in 2006, and the loss of my airline job, I (younger brother of 27 minutes) established Twin Islands Clothing in Peter's honor. Our brand represents the Twin Islands, their wave riders, and all the people who visit them. The logo I drew up is comprised of the two islands, a daily morning sunrise, a curling wave and surf break we call "wraparounds", and a hawaiian ewa bird representing my brother hovering above watching down on everyone.
Goal. Everyday customers and retailers email me asking if we have any other products beyond tees and sweatshirts, and our response has been "we're gettin there". Selling shirts, hats, and hoodies over the last three years has been great business! Without investors, however, it hasn't brought in enough profit for me to expand into a complete surf clothing line as fast as I've wanted it to. In order for me to do this, I'm asking for help in raising half of what I've saved up for the new products, fabrics, design, manufacturing, cutting and sewing, etc. etc. You guys can play a huge roll in making Twin Islands competitive amongst the top surf clothing company's in Hawaii! I am designing an exclusive shirt for this project making you guys officially part of our Twin Islands Ohana (family). Overtime, your shirt will remind you that you played a major role in kickstarting Twin Islands' future success.
Twin Islands t-shirts are made from the softest, highest quality American fabric, and printed here in Hawaii. When the pledging ends, I will order the exact number, and size of exclusive tees (mens or womens) for our backers and have them printed. During that period, I will email you guys a photo of the shirt, as well as all of our other tees you can choose from. If at any time you have questions or comments, you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't tell you how hard it's been to have lost my brother and best friend, but running a successful Twin Islands clothing line will continue Pete's memory for ever! Mahalo for your support and I look forward to getting in touch with each and everyone of you! Aloha!!
