Kauai Made products are identified by the ho‘okupu, an offering of an “honored gift” in traditional Hawaiian custom. In the Kauai Made logo image, this gift is wrapped in ti leaf. Often the ho’okupu was a lei (wreath) or an item of exceptional hand crafting and value. This symbol was chosen by the County of Kauai to reflect the deep respect we have for our aina (land), our people and the various cultures of our island.
To use the Kauai Made logo, a product maker must demonstrate that the product is made on Kauai, by Kauai people, and where possible, using Kauai materials.
