Aloha from Island Mercantile LLC

& Salty Wear

At Island Mercantile we look to provide our customers with modern Hawaiian gifts, accessories and apparel. Taking inspiration form the Islands lifestyle and the uniquely special environment that surround us, we look to create as little of a carbon foot print as possible. We shoot all the photos, do all the design, layout, cut, sew, print and paint, in house at our shop that we affectionately call the “Sugar Shack” in Kailua HI.

With diverse creative backgrounds in Architecture, Design, Construction, Fine Art, Paddling, Aquatics & Communications we have collaborated all our skill sets to create beautifully fun, functional and usable art.

We hope you enjoy having a piece of our Hale in to your home!

Textiles and fabric are difficult to recycle and most of it ends up in landfills (it is estimated 65lbs per person a month) which is a big problem for the environment. Hawaii is a plastic bag free state and most locations no longer provide bags, shoppers bring their own or need to purchase at check out.
