KAI NUI, KAI IKI
Our take on a traditional motif, we call these designs kai nui (big ocean) and kai iki (small ocean) and they were some of the first at Kealopiko. Their combination is a play on the ʻōlelo noʻeau “ʻIke i ke au nui me ke au iki” (Know the large and small currents), which speaks to knowing the details of something. Our kūpuna took learning seriously and to be well versed in a subject one had to know all aspects. We also play here on the idea of knowing our “local waters” as well as experiencing the larger Moananuiākea (Pacific ocean).
the Kealopiko Shop is OPEN!
