Kapua is the family home business of Donn and Nece DeShayne. We have lived in Hawaii for 38 years, mostly on Maui. We have been decorating clothes with tropical flowers for 32 years. We decided to make clothes for Hawaiian women, and women who lovw Hawai'i because of hula, sports, keiki activities and living amongst the local community. We have 4 children from ages 16 to 33.
Donn is the artist. He photographs & illustrates flowers for the designs. After drawing the lei he scans in the picture to the computer for layout and separation to make the screens for printing. He runs the backporch screenprint studio where our shirts are printed.
Nece is the sales department and fashion consultant. It is her love and involvement with Hawaiian culture that drives the enterprise. You will meet her at most of the fairs and craft events that we go to. She has been dancing hula for over 20 years. Some of her teachers have been Pua & Nalani Kanakaole, Nina Maxwell, Tisa Kalili, Kealii Reichel and Uluwehi Guerrero.
