Kohala Made

Inspired by sun-drenched shores, windswept pastures, and cool mountain air—this is Paniolo Country!

We ❤️ the makers of the Kohala District!

Ancient Hawaiians divided Hawai’i Island into six unique moku, or zonesHilo, Hāmākua, Kohala, Kona, Kaʻū, and Puna—honoring their distinctive geography, climate, and ruling aliʻi (chiefs). Today we’re proud to feature and celebrate the talented makers and local retailers who call the Kohala District home.
