About Irikonji Dive Gear:
Irikonji Dive Gear designs and manufactures very high-quality and innovative dive equipment. We focus on one product at a time, because that's how you get a world-class and category re-defining product. That product for us right now is Irikonji Dive Shorts.
We're divers, so we've got more of a "bespoke" business model where we focus on doing what we're passionate about. We're primarily interested in diving, conservation and designing and building things that make diving and conservation more fun. At the same time we're highly focused on supporting our retailers and customers, which is easy because they're divers too.
