Meet Paiko, Honolulu’s New Botanical Boutique - A Honolulu City Guide Feature
Located in Kaka’ako, Honolulu’s up-and-coming arts and culture district, Paiko Botanical Boutique combines a unique urban shopping experience with homegrown Hawaiian tropical vibes.
What exactly is a botanical boutique anyway? Once inside, you’ll discover a horticultural wonderland filled with a fragrant assemblage of native Hawaiian flora, succulents, and air plants; along with a beautifully curated collection of stylish home goods, one-of-a-kind handcrafted apothecary gifts, and hand-printed stationary. In short, Paiko Boutique is where fresh, aesthetically pleasing contemporary design meets mother nature’s roots and soil.
Taking after a handful of creative collectives and storefronts popping up in the Kaka’ako neighborhood over the recent months, Paiko offers a number of hands on opportunities for customers to get a feel for organic design. A monthly line-up of workshops and classes connects the community to artists, designers, and local experts through classes like Hawaiian horticulture 101, DIY contemporary gardens and terrariums, traditional lei and flower crown making, and how-to classes on creating stunning floral arrangements. Oh, did I mention Paiko workshops are BYOB?
For the Hawaii local in search of a little living color for the home or office, as well as shoppers just passing through in search of that special piece of Hawaii to take back home, Paiko Botanical Boutique is a must for your Honolulu to do list.
