I am Sew Me Hawai'i's biggest fan, or at least I like to imagine I am. Ki'ihele is fabulous. Her products are exquisite and are some of the best I have ordered. Anything I have requested of her, she has delivered, no MATTER what that request is. She is an amazing person, not to mention an AMAZING seamstress who possesses the knowledge to sew regalia in the appropriate, customary ways. I continually rely on her expertise to ensure my group has been outfitted authentically. Mahalo Ki'ihele for your dedication.

Beautiful skirt! The print is beautiful and the fit is just right. Ki'ihele asked for more information on sizing to make sure it was a perfect fit. I appreciated her communication. The package shipped incredibly fast! Thank you!

Ki'ihele made this skirt and left a large hem so that it can be lengthened as my daughter grows. It is a beautiful pattern and fits her perfectly. Thank you, Ki'ihele!

The pictures do not do these skirts justice. The patterns are beautiful and they move so well. Thank you, Ki'ihele for a custom fit! I appreciate the questions you messaged me to make sure everything was perfect.

About

Inspired by hula!

I have been sewing costumes for my hula sisters for about thirty years and now I have decided to turn that skill into a small business. However, it's not just a business for me. It's more about providing a service for those who are no longer living on the island, those who are inspired by the islands or those who are unable to sew for themselves.

Living on the island of Hawai'i, I find new inspiration every day for my "tropical" line.

    Inspired by hula! How can you live in Hawaii and not be inspired by the colors of rainbows, the flowers, the 'aina and lei?.

Aloha...e komo mai...come on in for a visit. Everything in my shop is handmade in Keaau, Hawai'i. I use beautiful tropical Hawaiian print fabrics. My items transcend my love for the islands and my passion for hula. So, stop in and browse, or drop a line just to say aloha.

Payment
I accept Direct Deposit through Etsy with your credit card or through Pay Pal. Taxes are included. If you have a deadline to reach, please give me advanced notice as it takes time to get across our ocean.
Shipping
I try and ship as quickly as possibly. If it is one or two items I can usually get them out in a day or two. If it is for an entire class it may take a week or two. If you have a special request, please allow an extra day or two. For example, if you need ten hula skirts for your class, please give me at least a week to make them. I'm happy to fulfill requests for different sizes or colors and will convey my time requirements prior to the order. Just drop me a message and I will get back to you. I generally use first class for smaller items and priority flat rate envelopes or boxes for larger shipments in order to keep the rate as low as possible yet still fast.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item is lost or damaged, I will refund your account through PayPal or your credit card. If a pa'u (hula skirt) is damaged, before refunding, I require the damaged skirt to be returned as I can recycle the four or five yards of fabric. I will refund the shipping costs to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
At this time I do not ship internationally as the rates have become astronomical. However, as a special request, I can do this. All taxes (VAT, etc) and duties are the responsibility of the buyer. I do ship via APO or FPO to foreign countries.
