About Us

Island Importer was created in 2000 by a young surfer/entrepreneur seeking to fund his nomadic lifestyle. It began with importing simple, light-weight beach wear from Bali and Thailand. Soon - limited by the sizing and quality constraints of ready made garments - Sangeet began working with tailors in Bali to produce his own designs in all-natural cotton and linen fabrics. These designs, many of which are still in production today, revolve around comfortable, loose-fitting, island styles, geared toward fellow travelers and yogis. By 2003 Island Importer developed an online presence, and from there, its future in the destination wedding attire niche was discovered, as the vast majority of customers were ordering outfits for their beach weddings.
"As word spread, our order volume increased rapidly. Customers are always delighted when they discover islandimporter.com. They say: 'These clothes are exactly what we have been searching for for our wedding! We have not been able to find clothes like this anywhere else. Thank you so much for being in business'! Since then we have been dedicated to designing and manufacturing high-quality beach wedding attire, providing our customers with a casual, yet classy, alternative to tuxedos and synthetic gowns. Over the years our product range has expanded to include, all-silk beach bridal and bridesmaid dresses, all-natural linen suits, shirts, and pants for grooms and groomsmen. What makes Island Importer unique is that in addition to carrying a large array of in-stock sizes and colors, we offer made-to-order, custom sizing. This gives our customers the option to order any of our garments in any size, including big & tall, and children’s sizes. Furthermore, customers can choose from nearly 60 custom colors to match their personalized wedding schemes. We still offer a large array of natural-fiber, island wear and yoga wear, including linen and cotton, draw-string pants, shirts, shorts, skirts, Thai fisherman pants, sandals and more. Check it out!
Customer satisfaction is paramount to us. We strive to exceed our customer's expectations with flexible, highly personalized customer service. We always do everything in our power to make sure our customers' wedding attire is impeccable and on-time. We treat our customer’s weddings with utmost importance. If shipping a replacement outfit over-night to a hotel in the British Virgin Islands is required to make it to the wedding in time, we will do so without hesitation.
