The success of our clients, which we depend on, begins at the manufacturing stage, but it certainly doesn’t end there. We are conscious and understand that our success depends on our clients’ success. Their sales translate into sales for us. This is why we offer our expertise in the industry to help companies position their brands in the market. We offer “level 1” public relations services, and brand consulting services. Level 1 PR services include but are not limited to: press reach out, sample handling for pulls, social media management, and press release dissemination.

This allows for our clients to get PR exposure without “breaking the bank”.
We also offer customized consulting services which are ideal for new brands or for those who find themselves “stuck” on a “plateau”. To inquire about these and our other services, please email us at email@example.com.

CLIENT / BUSINESS TESTIMONIALS
“Since the introduction to LA ISLA and it’s CEO, Enrique Sanchez-Rivera, working from development to production has been a great and positive experience. We have recently finished production of our swim collection with LA ISLA private label and we are 100% satisfied with the end product. We have worked with other manufacturers in the past and no other manufacturer compares. Their high standards and tight quality control is what will push your product to the next level. Their attention to detail and ability to customize is a great aspect for working with LA ISLA for complete packages. Communicating with Enrique has always been great as well as he is always accessible and responds in a timely manner. Thank you LA ISLA and Enrique!”
“In today’s marketplace, no business can ignore its environmental footprint because customers now want to know what businesses are doing to minimize waste, minimize use of resources, and create products that are not harmful to the environment. We are beginning to experience a wave of sustainable prosperity. I appreciate LA ISLA for using the inspiration from the ocean to create swimwear and clothing that is in the spirit of enticing people to be outdoors, to be close to water; to feel, breathe the natural world. We must connect the ocean to the existence of every human being. This is the only way for people to understand that the quality of each and every one of our lives depends on water, depends on the ocean.”

The manufacturing has been impeccable, as has been the company’s treatment towards me. They have been there every step of the way, answering every question, helping in every aspect and generally providing a great sense of support as manufacturing partners.

“There are truly no words to describe seeing our first swimwear line come to life and seeing how beautiful everything turned out was like magic. All thanks to LA ISLA, who took our vision & made it better! It can be extremely challenging to find someone who can do everything and anything you wish, but LA ISLA has done just that & more. We were amazed at the quality and detail that was put into every aspect of our designs. LA ISLA has made this process a fairytale journey.
