Maui by Design is located on the beautiful Islands of Hawaii. All our products are inspired by the natural beauty of the Islands of Hawaii.
Our products are designed on Maui with original art, and made exclusively for us. All are crafted primarily by hand, by artisans and craft people.
Maui by Design was founded in 1999 with a small line of inside or reverse hand painted Hawaiian Christmas ornaments. From the beginning, our Hawaiian ornaments were painted only with Hawaiian tropical designs. Soon it became clear that visitors to the islands loved to bring back a Hawaiian ornament as a keepsake of their visit.
Today Maui by Design offers you over 50 hand painted Hawaiian Christmas ornaments showing our beautiful tropical flowers, colorful sea life, romantic sunsets and uniquely Hawaiian Hawaiiana designs.
From the beginning, we only wanted to offer unique Hawaiian gifts. Soon after the initial Hawaiian ornaments, we added whimsical Hawaiian salt and pepper shakers to our assortment. Next came beautifully hand beaded purses and coin purses. (We do not stock these any more because the cost of hand beading with good quality beads has become too expensive. If you are looking for them you may still find them occasionally on auction sites.)
Next we created hand painted coin purses in tropical fish and floral designs that are painted by hand on very soft genuine leather. Finally we created our newest line of Hawaiian accessories made from embroidered silk.
All of our products are designed on Maui, and our inspiration is the amazing beauty of the islands. Where else in the world can you experience so many amazing feats of nature all on one day: the deep blue waters of the ocean and waterfalls flowing into natural pools? Frequent rainbows, magical hikes in lush tropical rain forests, and a variety of tropical plants that is stunning?
All this, and the unique Hawaiian culture! We simply love Hawaii, and express our love in our art.
Mahalo for visiting our site.
