Our Story

Find your Aloha

Find Your Aloha. That’s our heartfelt desire for everyone who visits our stores, and it’s one we take very seriously. We feel very fortunate to live and work here in Hawaii! We want to share this great vibe with others through fun, authentic and locally made gifts that celebrate Hawaii’s unique sense of place.

The Nene Goose is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands, and the official state bird of Hawaii. It’s considered to be the rarest goose in the world, and was rescued from the brink of extinction by a long-running conservation program. Although not completely self-sustaining, the Nene Goose nevertheless represents a major conservation success story here in the islands.

Coco is our own fun-loving nene goose. He goes on adventures all across the Hawaiian Islands and embodies everything about the nene goose that we love – its resilience, adaptability and love for Hawaii.

Our company’s roots go back to 1986 when our sister company, Pictures Plus, first began selling artwork at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet. Three years later, we began manufacturing our own picture frames locally on Oahu. Over the years, we continued to invest in sophisticated machinery and slowly grew our manufacturing capabilities.

In 2014, we began printing on metal, wood and other surfaces through a process we coined “Colorfuse.” As our abilities grew, so too did our desire to create products that represent the spirit and beauty of the Hawaiian islands.

At our manufacturing facility in Kapolei, Hawaii, we create a wide assortment of products – from lasercut wood frames and coasters to wall art and Longboard Letters. Over 30 years after we started at the Swap Meet, we’re proud to continue the tradition of high-quality, local manufacturing in Hawaii!
