Hawaii Finds

We aren't acquiring much aside from memories on this trip, but that doesn't mean I haven't been taking notes about cute things we come across in our travels.  I found a few gems on Kauai, the first of which was Jonas Claesson's surf art, which I already shared.  Anna tipped me off that I should visit Kokonut Kids in Hanalei, which didn't disappoint.  A few of the companies featured below I spotted there, and a few I found elsewhere on the island.

Based on Maui, Bitty Bambu makes dresses, pouches, and burp clothes in fabulous Hawaiian-inspired patterns.  The dresses and burp clothes I saw in person and they are darling.  I'm going to add the burp clothes to my baby gift repertoire.

Hi'ilani, A Baby Story, carries bibs, burp cloths, sensory toys, blankets, and crib sheets in a host of fun, tropical-inspired prints made in Honolulu.  Most of the fabrics you see on her Etsy site can be made into whatever you's like (baby-related).

Bradley & Lilly stationery, based on Oahu, includes clean designs with tropical motifs that aren't too over-the-top such that you could send them to people on the mainland who don't live in, say, Florida.  They have greeting cards, notecards, and tiny notebooks.

These Twoolies stuffed animals caught my eye!  They are all such vibrant colors, handmade, and each is unique.  Some of them are huge and perfect for climbing on.  These aren't made in Hawaii, but I'd never seen them before.

The High Fiber makes natural flour sack towels and cloth napkins with beautiful screen-printed designs.  My favorite is the fish print and the chickens are particularly appropriate for Kauai (although these are made in North Carolina).

Grom Squad hats are perfect for your little hipster (and for protecting them from the sun).  We bought the Sharky hat on our first trip to Hanalei and were coveting the Surfing Raccoon hat on this trip (I suspect it will be on B's Christmas list next year). 

Finally, darling clothes for little ones from Ultra Violet Kids, inspired by the creators daughter.  Love the fun fabrics, particularly the tropical romper, although I've realized rompers aren't practical for potty training.... but dresses are!
