FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
About our clothing:
Kealopiko clothing is inspired, conceptualized and designed in Hawaii nei. Our garments are created locally and domestically; sweatshop free. Kealopiko garments go through a custom cut & sew and dye process. Silkscreened items are done mostly with water-based inks with the well-being of our environment in mind. Also, Kealopiko clothing is pre-shrunk.
Taking care of your Kealopiko clothing:
All garments are machine washable. Machine drying is okay, but to keep the silkscreened water-base artwork bright, we recommend hang drying or having your dryers set on a low tumble. Besides that, we think our clothing is made for all occasions---from working in the loʻi to working in the office!
