‘Ohana Island Style
Tucked away on the second floor of Waikiki Beach Walk is a store dedicated to generating aloha in Waikiki. ‘Ohana Island Style, owned by Blaine Kia and Eiichi Abe, features a nice variety of Hawaii-made products, including fashion and accessories from hard-working, talented local artists. “‘Ohana Island Style is committed to becoming a caretaker of our people by perpetuating our local artists and Hawaiian goods in an array of skillful attributes handed down for generations and adopted through a traditional process,” says store manager Germaine Haili. “We select our products very carefully. We want quality and uniqueness.”
Step in the store and you immediately feel a sense of ohana. The store also offers free hula workshops every Tuesday at 3 p.m. and Friday at 4 p.m. The beginner hula introductory-level class runs 45 minutes. ‘Ohana Island Style is located at 226 Lewers St. For more information, call 923-3377, email firstname.lastname@example.org or find them on Instagram.
