Our Story

LIFE IS SWELL, LLC, is a surf-themed clothing line based in Honolulu, Hawaii offering family-friendly and eco-friendly choices.  We frequently partner with local screen printer Lanakila Pacific, a long-time Honolulu non-profit that provides meals for the elderly and gives employment training for the disabled. Owner Sonya Seng is a local-born mom who helps lead Bluewater Mission, a justice-oriented, faith community. She was the general manager of Seed Restaurant in Honolulu, which provided employment to victims of human trafficking and other high risk individuals. She became interested in t-shirt design while printing shirts for Seed.

As a community, we care for the earth and our bodies, reducing toxins and chemical use -- and wearing eco-friendly and sustainable fabrics when possible.
