Designer Giuseppe Botto Poala, affectionately nicknamed “Pin” by his family, established a woolen mill in 1876 in Valle Mosso in the province of Biella. Skill, craftsmanship and research all converge in the “Pin1876” collection, which offers its own take on contemporary life through the certainty of an authentic and inimitable heritage. In doing so, it is fully aware that preserving tradition also means looking ahead and combining past, present and future in a whirlwind of constantly changing, cross-category aesthetic and technical know-how. These are the origins of the line of accessories produced entirely in the factories of Botto Giuseppe and Cascami Seta, located respectively in Valle Mosso and in Tarcento in the province of Udine.
Crafted of sustainable cashmere gauze, Botto Giuseppe's scarf are finished with frayed edges. The celebrated label is renowned for its custom spinning, weaving, dyeing, and finishing processes, giving its luxurious designs a featherweight soft feel.

Mahalo for your support and friendship over the years.
Perri has also created, The Puka Project a community led initiative with the mission to bring our island ‘ohana (family) closer together to support one another. Our business and kuleana (responsibility) is crafting one-of-a-kind healing puka necklaces. We wanted to spread the puka love and healing to those that need it most, but we quickly realized we couldn't do it alone.
So we started The Puka Project, Maui's first ever "puka drive". This community project gives everyone the opportunity to do something small and simple to create something big and powerful. Simply-- find a puka, pick it up, infuse it with your healing energy, and pass it on to someone who needs it. For more information about the Puka Project go to http://pukaperri.com/the-puka-project/
Kendra and Suheiwa have lived in Maui since 2013, and their work has grown and expanded with the inspiration of the island, its majestic powers and beauty it beholds.
More than a stone.
KenSu Jewelry takes into account both the material and metaphysical properties of each gem. Those who wear KenSu designs are invited to discover which color, cut and stone will best enhance their individual needs. Each stone has a story to tell, and carries with it a subtle energy that can be healing and mood enhancing.
“Our intention is to enrich the life of each person who wears our jewelry,” they said. “We make simple and bold pieces that reflect the beauty and power of the island and are charged with the positive vibrations of light."
Domi meaning “to sleep” in Creole Haitian.
Ali’s Domi evolution was inspired by a trip through the state of Gujarat in India. It was here she fell in love with the simple organic fabrics woven by local village artisans. Since it’s beginning in 2013 the brand has evolved organically and now includes hand spun and woven blankets, organic bedding and prints based on delicate victorian patterns. With an emphasis on keeping it simple, she is excited to be soon offering a small collection of pared down “day wear”.
