I recently returned to Oahu for a short vacation and while en-route read of your company in Hana Hou Magazine while aboard a Hawaiian Airlines aircraft.
You were featured in an article about "Slippahs" among other manufacturers but your firm stood apart from them in many ways. I had lived on Oahu for 26 years when I left in 1991 to relocate to Vancouver Washington sadly never knew of your company. I was aware of course of most others, but having always opted for buying the cheapest slippahs I could, (and the small fortune it accumulated to I'm sure) was resigned to the perpetual cycle of buying replacements for the quick inevitable "death" these mass machine produced "junks" would encounter. No more however! As my young adult kids say "I'm not down with that" anymore. Thus my purchase of my first pair of PT202's.
Let me summarize my conversion by simply saying, I like the way you think. I like the way you treat your employees. I like the way you remain a 100% Local manufacturer in Hawaii.
Please, don't ever change that.
As I just ordered my slippahs today I am quite anxious to wear them, I only wish I could have done so there on the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, Oahu and Lanikai in particular. I would have proudly strode into Buzz's, sat down in the Koa room/bar ordered my traditional Mai Tai and announced to no one in particular "Eh? Everybody, checkout my new Island Slippahs, nice no?"
Next visit for sure!
"Me ke aloha pau ole a hui hou."
