Jana’s cross body bags in bold colors

I must admit I find myself in Waikiki more often now that H & M has graced our shores.

The other day I was wandering through the Royal Hawaiian Center and popped into Aloha ‘Aina boutique.

I was so happy to find a wide array of Jana Lam bags at Aloha ‘Aina,as well as several other local clothing and jewelry designers – the real deal, not fake stuff from other countries!

Although Jana is now a busy mom, she still manages to find time to hand silk screen her beautiful textiles and have them made into clutches and cross body bags. Each print has a story that’s close to her heart. She silk screens them in very small batches, just a  few yards at a time. Priced at $40 – $82, I can tell you that these fabrics are so sturdy they will last for years  and years and years. Jana Lam bags are also carried at Riches Kahala.
