This wonderful shop feels like a museum or gallery—only you can take the marvelous artifacts home with you. From the rich monkeypod wood floors to the collection of finely woven lauhala hats, shopping here is a feast for the senses. The store’s owners are committed to supporting indigenous Hawaiian artisans, who come here both to shop and stock the shelves with artwork of the highest craftsmanship. Browse the truly Hawaiian keepsakes and gifts: locally designed Kealopiko clothing silkscreened with Hawaiian proverbs, kukui nut spinning tops, soaps scented with native herbs, and lei o manu—fierce war clubs fringed with shark teeth. You can also buy bags of fresh poi and the island’s most precious leis, made of feathers, shells, or fragrant flowers.
