ABOUT US

The Keiki Dept. is owned and operated by Leilani, a Native Hawaiian Māmā of four.

After the birth of her son, Leilani started to create locally inspired clothing and accessories that was durable enough to handle everyday play. This passion project slowly evolved as her ʻohana grew and their needs changed.

Based in ʻAiea, Hawaiʻi, 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 ʻohana across the islands.
