OUR STORY /
"Folklore is not intended to serve as a company or a brand, but as a movement. A movement from surfers to surfers, between individuals that want to make a difference. We are a group of water pagans, devoted to the Ocean, Art and quality crafted goods.
We create quality, not quantity."
IT'S NOT WHAT
YOU DO / BUT
WHY YOU DO IT.
What are we up to now...
WATER FILTERS: Bali is running out of water fast, and in two years there may be no drinkable water left. For every board we sell, we give two water filters (and a lifetime supply of replacements) to a village in Bali in need of clean water.
We are currently partnering with Social Impakt and Waves for Water to help distribute water filters to areas affected by natural disasters and those people that are in need the most.
YOUTH & WAVES: We want to share our love of the ocean and our environmentally aware ethos with Bali, which is why we are expanding the FLKLR community. Every Sunday we will take a group of children from a local orphanage and teach them how to surf – lighting the fire that burns bright in the FLKLR community.
ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS: We are not looking to be a trend nor do things for the sake of saying that we are doing them. We have stopped producing Bamboo tees as we have learned that the actual process from Bamboo to fabric fiber is very toxic. Same with other alternative materials that have a similar process.
Until we find better alternative that are not worse then what we currently use, we are sticking to our current fabrics. Like; our sunglasses made out of broken skateboards, our stainless steel bamboo bottles, our 100% sunblock with no chemicals, wetsuit bags made out of recycled tarps, organic and rayon tees, organic dyes made of mushrooms for the pigment of our boards among others.
Not trendy people, but conscious individuals that want to make a difference, care for our Ocean, through the lens of art and love for waves while keeping tradition alive and always thinking of the future.
Less is more.
While we are a small and growing movement, our goal isn't to build a bigger wall (no offense Trump) but to build a longer table, to contribute to larger scale projects like The Ocean Clean Up and our youth. To give back to our communities wherever we set roots.
More trees, less ass holes.
Have something to share or contribute? We are always looking for individuals or brands alike to collaborate and innovate with new products. However, If you are looking for an instagram "Collaboration" we are not meant for you.
Tell us your story.
Our dream is to support companies like this one day.
