Dezigns by Kamohoalii clothing company based on the Island of Hawai‘i was created by renowned Kumu Hula Micah Kamohoalii in 2005 and shares foundational values of Hawaiian culture to its audience through art and design. This line of clothing strives to educate in the ways of Hawaiian designs, metaphoric imagery, cultural significance with strong symbolism and interpretations.
Dezigns by Kamohoalii encompass all of Hawaiʻi’s natural environments and honor the excellence and brilliance of the Hawaiian people. Kamohoalii’s passion for art led him into graphic design and his family’s legacy in Hawaiian Kapa led him into fashion. While merging these two elements the birthing of this company was formed. Dezigns By Kamohoalii feature layers of ʻike kuʻuna or traditional Hawaiian knowledge embedded in each design and inspired by his family’s mastery skills in working with Kapa, ʻOhe Kāpala, and Kākau. We honor the breath of life from our Kupuna by perpetuating, preserving, and retelling our stories in the designs we wear on our clothing.
