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.

When I was growing up, I remember when my family used to go to the beach. There would be limu all over the beaches. I remember my sister and I picking it up and throwing it at each other, squealing if it touched us in the water while swimming or pretending it was hair! Now that I have my own keiki, I quickly realized that limu is no longer as abundant on our shoreline. I know there are some places you may find it still but it saddens me to think that where limu was once abundant, it is now almost non-existent or has been pushed out by invasive species.
