Maoli is a 100% indigenously owned, small business.
Our story began with a mission to empower native Hawaiian people and cultural allies by producing modern, 21st century apparel that accurately reflects indigenous values and culture.
When creating Maoli clothes, our designers uphold the highest standard of cultural integrity with the understanding that the clothing will be worn by people from all walks of life. With Maoli, we seek to provide an avenue for native Hawaiian people and cultural allies to positively embrace indigenous identity.
At Maoli, we strive to uphold our values of HŌʻIHI (RESPECT), HOʻOMAU (PERPETUATE), and HOʻOULU (GROW). These values are at the forefront of everything we do and we use them to guide our designs and business.

Aloha! My name is Kaipo. As a guy who grew up in Kaʻaʻawa on Oʻahu, Maoli is a way for me to see myself in the world.
At a time when indigenous representation is so important, I wanted to create a brand for Native Hawaiian people and cultural allies that positively and accurately showcases who we are as native people. Because, if I do say so myself, we are pretty great.
Maoli is a 100% indigenously owned, small business. Our indigenous values permeate all elements of our organization. We pride ourselves in being a culturally accurate, transparent, environmentally conscious, inclusive business.
Mahalo for your continued support.
