Colorfuse, or dye sublimation, is the process of permanently fusing dye into various materials, including metal, maplewood and fabric. The result is fun, unique, made-in-Hawaii products that you can’t find anywhere else, including slippers, metal art and home decor.
All of our Colorfuse print products are made locally at our Kapolei, HI facility, and feature artwork by Hawaii artists.

Together, we support a creative platform for Hawaii’s locally-sourced talent, artists and craftsmen.

Care, Usage & Sizing

Why does the t-shirt say “Made in China?”

The shirt blanks are made in China, but the designs are by local artists and the printing is done locally here in Hawaii.

What are the care instructions for t-shirts?

Machine wash t-shirts in cold water and tumble dry on low. Use non-chlorine bleach when required. Do not iron decoration.

Do the t-shirts shrink? Are they true to size?

No, the t-shirts do not shrink. They are a cotton and polyester blend, so the shape and sizing will stay intact, even if you wash and dry on high heat. All t-shirts run true to size, although the women’s tanks are slightly wider in the armhole area.

Will Island Sole slippers give me blisters? Does the footbed print fade over time?

The slippers should not give you blisters, however each person’s feet or experience will vary. Like most footwear, the slippers stretch and soften over time, and become more comfortable with continued wear. The print will not fade from normal use, as it is permanently fused into the polyester strands.

Do the Island Sole slippers come in different widths?

Yes, we offer a unisex footbed with wide straps and a women’s slim footbed with slim straps. For more information on our sizes, please refer to our sizing chart below.

Do you carry Women’s size 4 slippers?

Women’s size 4 footwear can be found in the Youth section in Island Sole stores.

What are the Kavai Charms used for?

The charms can dress up any apparel, including slippers, bags and hats, by simply poking the pin through the material and securing on the backside with the clamp. You can even bedazzle your phone or electronics by using super glue to secure the charm.
