MADE FOR YOU
MADE TO ORDER
Every piece is made to order just for you, and by doing so, waste from overproduction is avoided. This production model has been the cornerstone of Lōliʻi since the very beginning and allows me to provide you with quality pieces with a lower carbon footprint.
All Lōliʻi mailing and packaging materials are made of 100% post consumer content/waste and are 100% recyclable.
Each quarter Lōliʻi will donate a percentage of all purchases made to organizations that support and uplift our lāhui and create solutions for the many issues Native Hawaiians face here in Hawaiʻi. Current programs include:
KAHEA: The Hawaiian Environmental Alliance is a Hawaiian led 501(c)3 non-profit organization that believes deeply in creating lasting and meaningful change through the power of community and collective action. The Aloha ʻAina Support Fund was created by KAHEA and prioritizes frontline logistical support for non-violent direct actions taken to protect Mauna Kea from further industrial development.
ʻĀina Momona is a Native Hawaiian led 501(c)3 organization founded by Walter Rite for the purpose of achieving environmental health and sustainability through restoring social justice and Hawaiian sovereignty. ʻĀina Momona works in grassroots communities to restore fragile ecosystems, promote cultural rights and practices, enhance community well-being, and advocate for native rights and social justice.
KAIĀULU VOLUNTEER DAYS
Kaiāulu Volunteer Days are another form of giving back to our community and are great opportunities to ʻauamo kuleana wile working together with others.
Wahi Pana is a collection of articles I've written and created to help combat the attempted erasure of Hawaiʻi- Hawaiʻi people, Hawaiʻi language, and Hawaiʻi culture. These articles tell the story behind the names of some of my most cherished places in Hawaiʻi, using their Hawaiian names, which Lōliʻi pieces are named after.
