eye & mission that gave birth to this shop.
While outward appearance is currently awkward,
I am taking orders &

Once KaLimaNanea.com is up & running, all invoicing will
be direct. That means, you request invoice, we mutually
agree, I invoice you, you pay & I ship. EASY & way more
fun !

ALL ELIGIBLE ORDERS will receive automatic discount when you request
invoice via KaLimaNanea.com. Items purchased through this

E Aloha Mai ! Ka Lima Nanea welcomes you. Here you will find high QUALITY hula
couture & polynesian dance regalia, as well as, supplies, collectibles and an
eclectic mix of the fantastic, inspired by my heritage, my third eye, my travels
and my life. Every item, created by me, is made with the mana`o, aloha spirit & wisdom of the Keepers of the Eastern Door, passed to me by my ancestors. I have embraced this knowledge and combined it with contemporary life to create beautiful pieces.......to dance in, to simply wear or to admire and treasure ! SPECIAL REQUESTS ARE ENCOURAGED. EACH HANDCRAFTED PIECE IS UNIQUE AND ONLY YOURS ! Looking forward to sharing generations of craftsmanship & helping you find your native treasure........

Share a picture with me in your wearable art creations !

I AM NOW SHARING UNIQUE DOLLS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. These doll
divas & other ethnographic treasures have been collected over a life well lived and travelled.
In researching color, design, costuming and family history, I began to collect vintage dolls and soon came to respect them for what they are..... keys to understanding that we are one family and that we are uniquely the same.
Whether they be small or large, these effigies speak volumes about the way that we perceive ourselves and others through time and space. They are a reflection of culture and history, of our darkest moments and our brightest, they are us .......... beautiful ! And they deserve our care & preservation.

Please think about this : Culture, traditions & values are not cheap resale items.
Cheap cheapens the culture, cheapens the dance, cheapens the value that we place on ourselves and has no place in traditions of the heart. Respect that which is lovingly being shared with you.
Learn, educate, preserve.
Smile, share, love !
