We are a family owned and operated business located on the historic North Shore ,Oahu, Hawaii.
It was a rough start for us to stay in the apparel industry to offer fair- trade clothing in Hawaii because we kept seeing the same cheap fabric for the mass production of tourist clothing we realized that it is impossible to compete with the ingenuine plastic nature of a souvenir industry.
We put our thoughts into it and came up with a new concept of children`s clothing in order to offer something unique and original to our customers, also to be humbly satisfied with our work.
We started Keikimono Apparel, Inc. to be a collection of `one-of-a-kind, handmade Children`s clothing with Tropical, Hawaiian and Polynesian custom prints that we designed by ourselves using historical art as our guide and teacher,
in order to offer something unique and original to our customers, also to be humbly satisfied with our work.
In the early days of the spur of Hawaiian pop culture, a local professional had an idea to combine a Philippine Dress/Casual shirt with Hawaiian flare print that has been known the world over as the Aloha Shirt.
We have taken inspiration from this ambassador of Hawaiian iconography, and blended our own unique and original concept from our love of Japanese culture and the influence it has had over generations of Hawaii kama-aina (locals).
Our featured, flagship product "Keikimono®" Kids Hawaiian Jinbei is a result of blending an iconic Japanese jinbei (Summer Kimono) with our custom prints which represent Hawaii. We believe it embraces the blending of two cultures of Hawaii and Japan that we Love!
Our creation of Keikimono Apparel is the latest addition to our ever expanding line of textile goods, as our very first brand "Sakura Baby Line" products will still be available.
Aloha is a life style and we want to share it with you!
Make an honest worthwhile contribution of unique and quality clothing to our community, while being able to pursue our passion and make a living. We believe our true happiness is found when we are in service to others.
Create authentic memories, melding two cultures (Hawaii- Japan), something that can be as iconic to Hawaii kama-aina (locals) as it is with visitors, with fair trade made with Aloha.
We Care about sustainable resources for obtaining fabric,
we want to know that someone made a living wage to produce the clothes we wear,
if you Feel as we Feel,
Let us "Be the Change we Wish to see in the World" together!
Our baby and children's clothing are made with bountiful Aloha! While shopping with us, we want you to be completely happy with the experience. If you have questions about us, our products, or even shipping, get in touch! We hope you continue to shop with us for many years to come.
