Coconut Style

Coconut Style has taken the simple things of Hawaii and blended them into a line of exclusive clothing. Styles with a relaxed feel, rich colors and easy textures. Originality with an innate freedom that reflects our island way of life.

Color comes naturally to Hawaii and is an essential part of everything we make. Dyes from India, Indonesia, China and Germany, are all mixed by hand creating an incredible range of colors.

Coconut Style’s relaxed textures have a comfortable, casual elegance. Soft silk blends, cotton wash and high quality rayons, are all hand painted in beautiful tropical motifs, reflecting the gentle influence of the Islands.

Everything is made by hand, giving their designs an inherent quality and simplicity not found anywhere else.

Banana Patch Online Review

Details of items found in Banana Patch Studios

Mahalo to Joyce D. of Bellevue, WA for this great yelp review.

Wow, I love this little store. How can you resist the ubiquitous “Mahalo for removing your shoes” tiles? But even if you don’t care for those, this place has so many beautiful things in it – great variety of tiles, wooden bowls, straw bags, jewelry etc. Not tacky, souvenir stuff, but nice things I’d buy even if I wasn’t on vacation. The workers are friendly, they’ll ship stuff to the mainland, and there’s a corner of comfy sofas and benches outside for the non-shoppers who want to chill while you shop. Some of the things in here are quite pricey (like Niihau shell jewelry), but there are lots of little, affordable things as well.
