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?

No.  They are a cotton and polyester blend.  The shape and sizing will stay intact, even if you wash and dry on high heat.

Are the t-shirts true to size?

Yes, although for the women's tanks are slightly wider in the armhole area.

Do you have men's tank tops available?

Not at this time.

Will the Island Sole slippers give me blisters? 

Island Sole 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.   

Do you carry Women’s size 4 slippers? 

Yes, size 4 can be found in the Youth section.

Do the Island Sole slippers come in different widths?

Yes. We offer unisex and women's footbed sizes. We also offer wide and slim straps. For more information on our sizes, please refer to our sizing chart.

Does the print on the Island Sole slippers fade over time?

No.  The print is fused into the polyester strands and will not rub off or fade from normal wear.  

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.
