About Us

Nā Mea Hawai'i, translated as "all things Hawaiian," is devoted to showcasing the work of local artists and crafters from the Hawaiian Islands, in particular Native Hawaiian artists. We have the largest selection of Hawaiian and Pacific Island books here and at our sister location in Chinatown, Native Books at Arts & Letters.

From the people
Amazing books, clothes, and gifts. Everything is high quality and the products are well curated. If you're trying to learn more about Hawaii during your travels, come to this spot and check out their collection of books on the nation's history.
Beautiful store and wonderful service every time I have visited. I love supporting a small business, especially a bookstore like Na Mea. This is a precious store that sells not only beautiful books written by Native Hawaiian authors, but also beautiful items. Thank you, Na Mea.
