new peeks: kealopiko makahiki 2011


makahiki season would certainly pass most of us by if not for the kealopiko 'ohana. in ancient times, when winter solstice neared native hawaiian life slowed down to celebrate happy times with 'ohana, feast on the bounty provided by the 'aina, and revel in delightful diversions from hula to surfing.

and so, makahiki has arrived and with it a welcome reminder for modern day kama'aina to breathe in the beauty of hawai'i and embrace all you love about island life.

happy congratulations ane, hina & jamie on five years of gorgeous handprinted goods inspired by hawai'i nei!

the makahiki celebration (+ weekend market details) begins after the jump!

if you have your heart set on the brand new eke scrap bag (love that they are reversible and crafted from remnant fabrics - hooray for one-of-a-kind style!), just know they are selling out within moments of arriving online, but you might have better luck at this weekend's holiday markets:
