Kealopiko creates designs and clothing inspired by the natural, cultural, and historical landscapes of Hawaiʻi, our home. We strive to bring elements of the world of our kūpuna (ancestors and elders) to contemporary apparel: native plants and animals, ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian language), our aliʻi (chiefs and monarchs) and the moʻolelo (stories and history) of our existence in these islands.
To get a feel for the manaʻo (meaning) behind our work, visit the Design Library and read some of the story tags that go with our designs. Here you will find the unique stories of each element of the Hawaiian world that we have created a design for.
Our fabrics are light, breathable and a pleasure to wear. Our cuts flatter all body types. We design locally and produce in Hawaiʻi and the USA. Giving back is part of who we are, so buying from us means supporting cultural practice and environmental stewardship in Hawaiʻi.
