We are here to share the knowledge and values of the Hawaiian people through art, by honoring the plants of the the islands, and providing a unique experience that is enhanced by teaching the symbolism of the hawaiian name of the plant, and giving insight to other aspects of our lifestyle that will build upon the experience: all to express gratitude, appreciation, and compassion for allowing a life in this island environment along with the hosts of this culture.

Sig Zane Designs is based on a strong, simple love. Our designs are wedded to a place, nature and culture, and our values are simple. Honor the land and the native culture. Celebrate excellence and beauty. And share what we know.

Whether it is koa leaves on an aloha shirt or puakenikeni blossoms on a dress, every Sig Zane design is conceived and defined by these values. We hope that the layers of meaning contained in these designs will enrich your life as they do ours. 

We are in Hilo, on the eastern shore of the island of Hawai’i, where the cleanest air in the world blows in from the northeast, across 2,500 miles of ocean. When the moisture from these trade-winds meets the fertility of this island’s five volcanoes, the beauty is rich and powerful.
