Celebrating native species through items we use every day
Hi and welcome! My name is Rae and I'm the owner/designer/artist behind Native Hawai‘i Designs. I'm a field biologist by training who also likes to get artsy. I love photography, graphic design, doodling, and merging them all into fun everyday items. Besides being a huge bird nerd, I have an extreme fondness for stationary, video games, and cartoon-style illustration.
The items I have in stock are passion projects that I produce in limited quantities. I also have some designs on Threadless as well. I hope you love them all just as much as I do!
Introducing Manu Huhū! Sometimes I get weird mashup ideas as I'm doodling late at night... here's one of those ideas from my sketchbook. Our native species have been through (and are still going through) a lot... they have lots to be huhū about. This particular illustration style should look familiar to anyone who spent a lot of time playing phone games in the early 2000s. Get your Manu Huhū apparel on Threadless!
Pixel Collection Accessories Available Here
More Pixel Collection Awesomeness
Additional print-on-demand items sporting the pixel collection are also available on Threadless! These items are printed and sold through Threadless, rather than directly through my website. It has enabled me to to make more cool stuff available, which I wouldn't have been able to do if I had to buy the inventory outright.
I appreciate Threadless' support of small businesses and independent artists & designers!
Being so obsessed with stationary and letter-writing, native bird stamps were always something that I've wanted but could never find... so I finally made my own. Bundle deal available: buy all three and save 10%!
Decorative Washi Tape
Great for craft projects, scrapbooking, adding some native bird flair to letter envelopes (people still write letters right??), and more!
