A very unique boutique, Kai Ku Hale on the North Shore in Haleiwa offers some one of the most eclectic blend of locally made and inspired home decor, clothing, gifts, art, and jewelry. While shopping in Kai Ku Hale you'll feel like you're in a museum slash high end home, a feeling that you'll want to take with you when you go.

The shop is loaded with Hawaiian style crafts and useful items for the home. Entering through the back door you'll first walk through the clothing area (mostly women's) where you find hand painted dresses and shirts, sarongs, and skirts. This is also there are where hand painted silk table clothes and locally printed hand and dish towels can be found.
All throughout the store is a truly generous amount of art in all of its forms. Phenomenal photographs form local photographers, detailed paintings of the ocean and jungle, shell creations, mobiles (many with a beach theme), and wall hangings are all here to be discovered.
A real highlight at Kai Ku Hale is the jewelry. They have locally handmade shell and beach glass creations on sterling silver and gold, as well as sterling silver and gem jewelry from other countries. The home decor is some of the best in town, and will make you want to redecorate your home with an island theme.
