Most flattering and comfortable swim suit I’ve ever owned. The bottoms are perfect-cheeky and classy. Love the color and the high quality fabric feels like butter. Thanks Hanu, you’re an amazing designer and provide excellent customer service. Mahalo!

Amazing communication. The bathing suit bottoms are better than I could've wished for. Will order again in the near future.
The seed of Hanu Hawaii was planted by Maui girl, Kahanulani Mina at the age of 13 who had a sewing machine & a dream to create her own swimwear line.
Home birthed & homeschooled in the middle of the pacific on her parent's Organic micro-green farm, Kahanulani “the breath of heaven" established a love for nature from Mauka to Makai at an early age with a creative flair for fashion.
Connecting the dots, this Coconut girl always embraced the raw elements of her island home lifestyle & constantly found herself outside wearing her swimsuits as second skin day in & day out. With that she felt inspired to start sewing her own swimwear at the age of thirteen & ended up falling in love with the process. Her friends, then friends of friends started buying into the quality and creativity of her designs which empowered her to continue pursuing this passion.
Completing college level fashion design classes while still in high school & also working a summer internship with a local swimwear line, Hanu hit the ground running graduating with a business dream to own and operate one herself. So she went for it & turned that dream into reality creating an Etsy shop in 2012.
Here we are today 8 years later continuing to offer quality swimwear all handmade in house at her sewing loft on Market Street Wailuku, that just so happens to be only a few blocks from her family's farm- where she was born & where it all started.
Hanu has hand-made over 15,000 bikini pieces herself for fellow babes who have valued and supported her grass roots “Hanu Hawaii" line worldwide, continuing to unfold the flower of this dream.
"From pool dipping to wave riding we make sure each piece is versatile & comfortable enough to support you through all your adventures while having the perfect cuts that accentuate the right places, empowering the confidence that every girl should hold strongly within herself. Our perfections lie in our imperfections-all shapes, sizes, colors are absolutely beautiful. Our mission is to make a piece of aloha that you can take with you wherever you go & wear it with pride-feeling into that beautiful goddess you are.
Our designs are crafted to keep up with that babe who’s always on a mission, with an eternal flame fueled by passion. You can find her at the local farmers market stocking up on goods, chasing waterfalls, dipping in lagoons or jet setting to far away places she once visited in a dream. Embracing her forever young spirit with every trip around the sun.”
