boutique week: super citizen

happy tuesday! my regrets for missing photo.phile yesterday (a bit of a scheduling mix-up - whoops!), but i hope to have more photography goodness for you next monday.

as promised, boutique week hops over to my home island for this week's oahu edition! first up, super citizen (fyi: website is still under construction) which adds yet another good reason to hele down to chinatown's art district. the shop is stocked with everything you need to be a good sustainable soul, and its eco-friendly mission began from the ground up with the shop interior outfitted with craigslist finds and display tables and counters built locally from reclaimed wood.

after working her way up the retail ladder (including stops at american apparel hq and buying duties at tori richard), super citizen proprietor sandra fowler found herself drawn to earth-friendly goods and decided to focus on a merchandise mix which would help kama'aina take little steps to tread lighter on our island. step inside super citizen and you can scoop up sustainable style by local designers, organic keiki togs and toys, and recycled and reusable home goods to help reduce your carbon footprint.

local labels stocked at super citizen include ecolicious totes, malie organics, o'mao mao, vers hawaii tees & jewelry by beachcomber designs, ezer kenzo, oceana and paula nurse.

also in-store: american apparel, green babies keiki wear, klean kanteen, reuse denim, skoy cleaning cloths and to-go ware.

new arrivals: upcycled kimono pillows and purses made in hawaii!

  • where: 22 south pauahi street, chinatown (by marks garage)
  • shop hours: mon & sat, 11a to 4p | tue, 11a to 5p | wed to fri, 11a to 6:30p

p.s. until the website launches, click over to super citizen's facebook for shop updates.
