Bamboo Store Cariloha Opens at King’s Shops in Waikoloa
Combining Caribbean style and the Hawaiian aloha spirit, Cariloha recently opened at the Kings’ Shops at Waikoloa Beach.
The store features bamboo-based products, including clothing, hats, accessories, bed sheets, bath towels and jewelry.
“We believe Cariloha’s dedication to the regeneration of bamboo resources illustrates our commitment to helping grow the Hawaiian economy,” says store owner, Stephanie Davis.
She and her husband Chris also own a Cariloha store on Kauai.
A percentage of the first month’s profits will be donated to the Hawaiian Chapter of the American Bamboo Society.
