Dear MANAKAI Community,

I hope this message finds you well. It's been a journey of resilience since the Lahaina fires on August 8th, 2023. The outpouring of support has been my guiding light during these challenging times.

I want to express my deepest gratitude for standing by me as I faced the loss of MANAKAI's eco boutique, personal home, and warehouse. Your support has been the driving force behind my determination to rebuild and come back stronger.

I also want to address the time that has passed since our last communication. Rebuilding my life and healing my heart is a on-going process, and your patience means the world to me. I wanted to ensure that when we reconnected, it would be with a renewed spirit and clarity on how to guide my independant business forward. Deep breath.

Today, I'm thrilled to share a ray of light amid the darkness – our unveiling of our new collection. This collection is not just swimwear; it's a symbol of renewal, strength, and the unwavering spirit of our community. Each piece is crafted with love and sustainability at its core, reflecting our commitment to the environment while rising literally out of the ashes.

As we embark on this new chapter, I invite you to be part of our journey. Explore the two colors, eco-friendly materials, and unique designs that define this collection. It's more than just fashion; it's a celebration of our shared resilience and the beauty that emerges from adversity.

Visit our new collection (link below) to discover the collection and embrace the spirit of renewal with us. Your continued support means the world to me, and I can't wait to share this exciting new chapter with each and every one of you.


Aloha Nui,
