A walk down memory lane
Island Bazaar started with a couple of cushion covers and a few artworks and a lot of support and encouragement from family and friends.
We made the artworks (in our home) out of our photographs that we took on our travels within the Maldives and on our morning walks around Male’ and Viligili.
We displayed these along with a few other products by local artisans on our Instagram account of very few followers in the initial months.
Ten months after we registered the business and started our Instagram account, on September 2nd 2016 we opened our humble boutique in Male’. And grew slowly and organically and continue to do so thanks to you our loyal followers.
Today we celebrate 3 years since we opened our boutique by launching our website. We are extremely grateful for our journey so far and for the opportunities and lessons along the way, and we hope this is just the beginning of sharing our passion for our island lifestyle with a wider audience.
We thank you for your continued support.
