This unique shop sells beautiful kites that are superbly constructed from taffeta nylon and fiberglass frames. Designs include the "whale's tale," a dancing hula girl, a gorgeous butterfly and the stunning "happy dragon." One particularly unique design is the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa (the koi, Hawaii's state fish), which consists of bright blue, red, yellow, turquoise and black panels interwoven to create a five-foot long "fish." Many designs have symbolic significance, like the pineapple (hospitality) and Kahili rainbow feathers (good luck). The factory gives free tours and complimentary kite-flying lessons, too. Imported kites are also available.
