About Us

Noʻeau Designers was founded by two mana wāhine in 2017 and is currently under one owner: Vaalele Malaki-Torres. What started as a pop up shop has blossomed into a big beautiful storefront in Ka Makana Aliʻi with another on the way in Ala Moana Center. 

Noʻeau Designers is home to over 100 small businesses including Native Hawaiian-owned, made in Hawaiʻi products, and locally based brands. 

Noʻeau Designers is proudly kanaka and wahine-owned! 🙌🏽 

We offer a marketplace that is based on Hawaiian values. At Noʻeau Designers you will find a variety of made in Hawaiʻi artist and products, a one stop shop for our customers allowing them to see their favorite artist in one location year round. Whether you are looking for clothing, jewelry, accessories, bath and body products, an ʻukulele or even a poi pounder, we have it!

We also offer a variety of Hawaiian cultural workshops and have different pop ups and trunk shows throughout the year. 

Mahalo piha to all who have contributed to the growth of this small business and we’re grateful to serve the Lāhui. 

Me ke aloha haʻahaʻa
