Island of Big Island

Pura Vida O’Kohala is a “must see” in the Kapa‘au Arts District just north of Hawi. The gallery features a wide variety of personally selected, handcrafted items originating from artisans found exclusively across the Hawaiian Island chain and the mainland U.S. Dazzling and unique jewelry, exquisite hand-dyed silk clothing, and distinctive creations in wood, ceramics and glass complement mixed media wall hangings and wind sculptures blowing in the refreshing North Kohala breeze. Located in the historic Nanbu building, come and explore inspired, functional, handcrafted art in “old Hawai‘i.”
