Hari Mari’s story started in Indonesia, where the husband and wife team, Jeremy and Lila Stewart, lived and worked for several years, starting in 2007. During their time in the island nation, Jeremy was producing a documentary film on children fighting hunger and malnutrition in Southeast Asia, and Lila was volunteering on behalf of the American Women’s Association in Jakarta, spearheading in-country fundraising, clothing drives, and food donations to aid and support orphans across the archipelago. Their unique & indelible experiences clicked and spurred a collective passion for helping kids abroad.
Moving back to the States in 2010 and expecting their first child, the two decided the next project they undertook would be to help kids here in the US, and when they saw an unmet need for comfortable and colorful flip flops at a premium level, they married the two passions together to found Hari Mari.
Hari Mari launched in 2012, bringing clever color and superlative comfort together in a singular flip flop, creating looks as unique as the people who wear them. Described by Details Magazine as “The only sandals a guy should wear” and tapped as “stylish and absurdly comfortable” by Outside Magazine.
