ALOHA COLLECTION WAS BORN OUT OF A LOVE OF TRAVEL, ADVENTURE, AND THE OCEAN.
In 2009, a vacant room and a Craigslist ad brought two friends together.
Years later, a twist of fate brought them back together again. In 2013, Rachael, broken (literally broken foot and broke from not being able to fly), and Heather, who found herself in a volatile real estate market, were both dreaming of something bigger.
ALOHA Collection started with a single bag, a shared dream, and a Kickstarter campaign. With $2000 each, a bit of magic, and a handshake, ALOHA Collection was on its way. Since the launch of ALOHA Collection, Rachael and Heather have not only created a thriving business, they have built an international ʻOhana.
In Hawaiian, mālama ʻāina means to take care of the land. We donate 5% of profits to Hawaiʻi-based conservation organizations annually as a way of giving back to the community and to help preserve the cultural heritage and natural beauty of our home.
As a company founded by two Native Hawaiian women, giving back is important to us. We look forward to future partnerships as we continue to grow!
