Kūlua creates small batch clothing, home goods, and accessories for the modern Hawaiian lifestyle. The prints and fabrics are woven together to tell the story of our island home of Maui. Sustainable, modern aloha wear that is grounded in ʻāina land and Hawaiian culture.
Our goods are cut and sewn in small batches at our Studio Shop in historic Makawao town. Our fabrics are soft and sustainable, using industry best-practices for eco-friendliness. Our collections include modal knit classics for elevating your every day, modern muʻu with a nostalgic feel, aloha shirts, keiki wear, unique jewelry, accessories and home goods that promote a more sustainable lifestyle. Our team is made up of women who love to sew and make.
Every year we deepen our commitment to give back to our community and support local. We carry other local makers in shop and do special, limited edition collabs. We give back 1% to our local nonprofits that work in Hawaiian culture and education to ensure that we make a positive impact on our future.
