Banana Wind is a home accent and gift store located in Lahaina, Maui Hawaii- A store filled with unique items- all 100% Hand Made- from all around the world. I’m Nina, and I had a dream to travel with my children and show them the world. So Banana Wind was born to get us out on the road! I travel with my children, Zeb and Marley, to places far away…working with villages, families, and artisans to create items just for our store. All the items are inspired by our life on Maui, so everything has that Hawaiiana touch. Because many natural resources and materials found in Hawaii are not sustainable or even prohibited to collect from the islands, we make sure to use materials found sustainably in other parts of the world, and at the same time help families from all over…
Your purchase supports families from around the world!
This guarantees a store filled with Eco-friendly, sustainable unique items found no where else. Items include home accent pieces, such as baskets, artwork, candles, jewelry, ceramics, wood carvings, and picture frames; home accents that are guaranteed to turn your home into a tropical paradise! We are also proud to carry Hawaii’s largest sea shell collection- filled with shells that can be found in Hawaii, but not sustainable to collect from there. All the shells are non-endangered and only harvested for food, or previously expired. The families that collect and polish the shells are supporting themselves by this work. Everything in Banana Wind has it’s own story… Where it came from, what it’s made of, what makes it unique, or what inspiration it was drawn from. And each item you purchase will include that story. Thank you for making a dream come true for me and my kids, and for supporting families and artisans worldwide. And because every piece is made with aloha, it is our sincere wish that every piece you purchase gives you that same feeling of aloha for years to come.
