Aloha Mai Kakou!

Welcome to the Keiki Dept.

The Keiki Dept. (department for short) is owned and operated by Leilani, a Native Hawaiian Mama of four.

What started as passion project in 2016, after the birth of her oldest son, slowly evolved into The Keiki Dept. we see today.

Based in Aiea, Hawaii, The Keiki Dept.’s mission is to share knowledge of Hawaiian culture through their products and give back to their local community. This year, The Keiki Dept. will continue to donate to organizations that provide services to both keiki and ohana across the islands.
