Collection Lei Nā Moku
Like lei that grace loved ones, the seas embrace our pae ʻāina. The channels that encircle our mokupuni are precious pathways, linking the islands of the Hawaiian archipelago to one another. They serve as conduits for navigation and transportation, transcending time and space while connecting one generation to the next. Ancestral knowledge about our beloved waterways is embedded within mele and moʻolelo, which continue to inform how we maintain our ocean and other natural resources today. Collection Lei Nā Moku depicts a lighthearted pattern that embodies natural formations our tides assume. The endless lines adorn the body like a wreath, signifying the eight seas – nā kai ʻewalu – that bind our islands: 
  • ʻAlenuihāhā (Hawaiʻi and Maui)
  • ʻAlalākeiki (Kahoʻolawe and Maui)
  • Kealaikahiki (Lānaʻi and Kahoʻolawe)
  • ʻAuʻau (Maui and Lānaʻi)
  • Pailolo (Maui and Molokaʻi)
  • Kaiwi (Molokaʻi and Oʻahu)
  • Kaʻieʻiewaho (Oʻahu and Kauaʻi)
  • Kaulakahi (Kauaʻi and Niʻihau)
(A ninth sea that is less frequently mentioned is Kalohi, the channel between Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi.)Through Lei Nā Moku, we celebrate the invigorating kai that uplifts those who expertly traverse them, stringing together land and people like treasured lei.

Collection Honuaola

Collection Honuaola celebrates fundamental shapes and organic formations found in our natural environment—from heaven to earth, from the uplands to the sea, from the rising sun to the setting sun and all that are encompassed in between. These familiar lines, patterns, and textures bind us to the lands that have continuously nurtured kānaka from one generation to the next. The featured hues, motifs, and silhouettes remind us of our relationship with the elements and the responsibility we have to ensure our precious resources flourish in perpetuity. May Collection Honuaola help to keep us grounded, grateful, and growing. E ola ē!

Collection Laʻiʻāpuakea

Collection Laʻiʻāpuakea pays homage to designer Kaʻanoʻi Akaka’s ʻāina hānau of Kāneʻohe, Koʻolaupoko, Oʻahu where her ʻohana has been blessed by the ʻĀpuakea rain, refreshed by the Ulumano wind, and safeguarded by the majestic Koʻolau mountains for generations. May Keha’s inaugural collection inspire within you sentiments of aloha ʻāina--connection to and care for the ancestral lands that have nurtured you.

Print Kenikenialoha - This whimsical design is a tribute to the first blossom designer Kaʻanoʻi has ever known and loved. The scent of pua kenikeni—the ten-cent flower—filled her ʻohana's home growing up. One of Kaʻanoʻi's fondest childhood memories is learning how to mālama their tree and properly pick and string its pua, which adorned many loved ones over the years. Pua kenikeni continues to be a staple for her ʻohana and many other ʻohana who call the district of Koʻolaupoko “home.” May the fragrance of Print Kenikenialoha permeate and brighten your home, too.

Print ʻOhekaulanaPrint ʻOhekaulana celebrates the enlivening elements of Kāneʻohe, Oʻahu. The invigorating waters and majestic Koʻolau mountains unify in the arches patterned throughout this design. The raindrop watermark is as refreshing as the ʻĀpuakea rain on a cool Kāneʻohe day, and the prominent ʻohe (bamboo) motif evokes feelings of resilience, strength, and growth. E ulu nō a pā i ka lani.
