Custom Sarongs is planning a photoshoot in Santa Monica on August 24th.  We will have two beautiful models along with a talented photographer.  Since the inception of Custom Sarongs, we have had only one official photoshoot, so as you can imagine, we are pretty excited.  

The new photos will be used for a fresh new layout for our Awesome Sarong website.  This website is long due for some new sarong photos that really show off the shape and design of our products.


We will be shooting a variety of different types of sarongs.  Some of the sarongs that we would like to shoot are the cheetah, zebra, and Brazilian Bom Fin sarong.  These are great sarongs that can be used for everyday purposes.  

At Custom Sarongs, we've photographed a lot of flag sarongs and custom sarongs.  At Awesome Sarongs, we'll be focusing more on unique designs and patterns.  

If you have any unique ideas for new sarongs with fresh designs and patterns, please send us an email with your ideas.  If you have any photos in a sarong that you'd like displayed on our site, send them to us!  

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  Get your custom sarong or pareo today!  Cheers!

 
 
Wholesale Sarongs
Our newest collection of wholesale custom sarongs just arrived from Indonesia. We received the cheetah print sarong, USA flag sarong, Canada flag sarong, Brazil Bom Fin sarongs, Solid White sarongs, Brazil flag sarongs, and Zebra sarongs.

For now, you can purchase these sarongs on this page.

We created the USA and Canada flag because we received so many emails from the public. Both flag sarongs came out really nice. The colors are vibrant, and the sarongs look great however you choose to use them.

The Cheetah and Zebra print sarong were derived from patterns we found online. They are good-looking patterns that we thought would look good on sarongs.  

Last but not least, our Brazil Bom Fin sarong. The existing Bom Fin design was hard to find in Indonesia. We ended up replicating the design from a sarong we purchased in Brazil. The new sarong looks just like the original, if not better! The text is in Portuguese, and the sarong is full of contrasting colors which really make this sarong stand out. We've gotten more compliments from this sarong than any other.

Get a new, one-of-a-kind sarong to finish off your summer in fashion!!

Indonesian sarongs made with California love.

I always try my best to keep up with UFC and my favorite fighter Anderson Silva. This past Saturday I was once again blessed to witness the greatest fighter do what he does best. He put on another great show and once again proved that he is the best in the sport and showed the lack of real competitors in his weight range. Okami had no chance, zero, none, zilch.  

Dana White said the Brazilian fans were some of the craziest and hardcore fans he had ever witnessed at any UFC event. I could only imagine the energy of the arena and pride that the Brazilians felt with so many talented Brazilian fighters fighting at home in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  

Maybe next time Dana will be holding up a Brazilian flag sarong instead of a generic flag. While watching the fights I noticed many fans had the Brazilian flag sarongs and were waiving them through out the night. Can't wait to see Silva fight again! Tchau!

This company was started because of my trip to Brazil and the experience I had in Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian flag sarong hangs in my room and there is not one day that passes when I don't think about Brazil. Rio de Janeiro is an amazing city, and I can't even begin to comprehend how fun and exciting this global event will be.

One of my goals is to return to Rio in 2014 for the World Cup. I've already set up a "BRASIL 2014" savings account and am well on my way to financing the trip. Aside from attending the World Cup, I also plan on to provide country flag sarongs for all of the big countries. In two years, I hope to have at least ten country flag sarongs in my inventory. 

Below are four flag sarongs that I am in the process of producing. Aside from the four below, I also have the Brazilian flag, Jamaican flag, Mexican flag, and Canadian flag.

Our sarongs were a hit at the Marquee Day Club Pool Party at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. We brought a variety of different flag sarongs that provided good fun throughout the day. Dipping the sarongs in water and using them to cool us down under the hot sun was priceless. Beautiful people, beautiful location, beautiful music, and beautiful sarongs - what more could you ask for?  

Pool parties are the new standard in Vegas, and I can't wait to go back next year. I haven't had that much fun in a long time. Sarongs are a definite MUST for any pool party in Vegas.

I've been kicking myself in the butt this year for not attending Coachella. 

Here are some photos and some footage of people sporting sarongs. One of the girls wears her sarong as a cape. This is a great way to show it off and keep you cool on a hot summer day. Notice the guy in the video wearing the Brazilian flag sarong around his head. Wearing the sarong as a headband is genius!!! I wish that had been me in that video about to witness a great set by legendary A-Trak!

See you all next year at Coachella 2012!!!  I'm already on the payment plan, LOL!

 
 
I came across this old picture while browsing through my phone. When the 2010 World Cup was taking place in South Africa, we were at the local bar drinking caipirinihas and wearing our Brazilian flag sarong. After wearing the sarong, people immediately were asking us where we got the sarong from and if we had visited Brasil. Go Brasil!

Lounging on the picnic sarong.
I recently spent a beautiful weekend in New York. New York was Paris, Buenos Aires, London, and Santiago all rolled into ONE!  We visited the Top of the Rock, the Financial District, walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, and experienced the nightlife in the Meatpacking District and in the Lower East Side aka LES. 

We also visited Central Park twice! The weather was amazingly nice. I brought my Brazilian Sarong with the iconic Brazil flag design and used it to keep the damp earth from getting me wet. A picnic sarong is perfect for any type of outdoor park terrain- whether it be grass, sand, dirt, etc. The sarong or "canga" as Brazilians call it, was very light and easy to carry.   

Sarongs are a definite MUST when traveling. Whether it's a long weekend in another city or a two month trip through Europe, be sure to pack a sarong for any outdoor picnic experience! Take a look at the pictures while lounging in Central Park my sarong.

I got the idea of starting this business after visiting Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While I was there for a month, I noticed the abundance of sarongs on the Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. After purchasing several sarongs and using them daily, I thought to myself, "why don't we have any of these back home?" 

After doing some digging, I was able to find my old Rio post that I had posted on my personal blog three years ago. Now, after reading it, I really really want to go back to Brazil. Here's the post:

I want to remember everything I did in Rio. So this entry will be solely dedicated to my experience in Rio De Janeiro, BRASIL. Here it goes..

Places to eat:
  1. Big B´s - Theres one on every corner. I usually ordered an Açai with a Cheeseburger. You can mix it up a bit and get different sucos or smoothies. Great place for late night grub.

  2. Apollos - I went here for the first week, but after awhile the stale pastries get kind of old. A great place to get a big bottle of Lipton Ice Tea and some fresh bread.

  3. Galeto- In portuguese Galeto means baby chicken. You can find small galeto restaurants everywhere in Copa. The food is quality and affordable.Places I visited:House - Located in Leblon, and upscale club that tries to impress its crowd with sophisticated computer technology that documents and photos every person that enters the club. The only plus is girls are free before 12, guys are 20, and they have free Capairinhas till 12. Have fun paying for overpriced watered-down drinks. The night usually starts out with a live Samba band, and around 12 they open up the upstairs and start blasting trendy house music. It´s gringo infested, the locals are stuck-up gringo hunters. So only come here if you´re with a big group.

  4. Casa De Matriz - Located in Botafogo, I heard this place goes off on Wednesday nights. I went here my first night in Rio, I think it was a Friday. They were playing brazilian funk music, not funkie. A lot of jazzy samba and slow beats. I did not enjoy the music, but the layout of the club was great. Lots of girls as well. Come here on a Wed or Thurs.

  5. Casa Roja - Located in ... I can´t remember Sao Cristovao?? It´s about a 20 min taxi ride from Copa. The layout is great, lots of people, and the music is ok. It goes off Sunday nights.

  6. Lapa - The place where EVERYONE goes on Friday nights. Lapa is a street situated in front of huge white archs where everyone hangs out, dances, and drinks. You can here music from every club in the area blasting their music toward partygoers. There are guys walking around with their shirts off, people screaming and yelling, and many locals bumping into you. Most people pre-party here until 2 or 3 and then end up finding a local hip hop or funkie club in the area. Most places play a little of everything. There is one club called 40 grados which is a little more upscale. The place is pretentious, I would not recommend going here unless you have money to spend, and want to feel cool.

  7. Castelo das pedras - Located in a Favela 40 minutes from Copa. It´s a huge warehouse party. The downstairs dancefloor is huge and is filled with cariocas walking around with their shirts off and sweating profusly. The VIP upstairs area is all gringos. It´s nice because you can go up and down when you like. It´s FUNKIE music all night. You must go here if you want to experience a true favela party. If you're staying at a hostel and someone asks you if you want to pay 60 Reals to attend the party, say NO! Get a group of friends together, taxi it there, pay the 10 Reals to get in. Once you're in, bribe the security guard to get into the VIP area, or have one of your gfs make a puppy face. After the club is over, there are literally 6 or 7 gringo vans waiting outside. Hop into any van, they all go back to the same area, and don't check whether you paid or not. CHEERS!

  8. Beaches:  Everyone in Rio wears "cangas" also known as sarongs. These are extremely popular and you can find them on almost any beach in Brazil.  They not only serve as a towel to dry off, but many wear them around their waist. The one sarong design that stood out the most was that of the Brazilian flag. Many locals wore this sarong as well as many tourists. Whenever I saw that sarong while traveling through South America, I knew that person had visited a beach in Brazil. After staying in Rio for almost a month, I ended up leaving with three different Brazilian Cangas.

  9. Copacabana - A little dirty and too close to home

  10. Ipanema - Tower 9 or Posto novo. We always met people here, beautiful location with great views.

  11. Barra do Tijuca- 35 min from Copa. There were no gringos here. Beautiful beaches with local kitesurfers entertaining you. 

Locations I visited:
  • City of God or Cidade de Deus - Crazy place. I saw a youngster with a gat on every corner. The apartments from the movie was the first thing I saw entering the city.
  • Escalera de Selaron
  • Santa Theresa
  • Barra De Tijuca
  • Leblon
  • Itaguai
  • Gavea
  • Leme
  • Rocina
  • Tabajaba
  • Enough for today. SAI FORA!
 

Sarong has many different names in different parts of the world: Canga, Kikoy, Kanga, Pareo, Lavalava, Lamba, Capulana, Zambias, Sampot, Longyi etc.
