Thoughtfully crafted and curated offerings for body, altar and home
Hina Luna is a creative inquiry bridging the connections between body, altar, and home. This is expressed through seasonally-released offerings made in a home-studio in Hawai’i as well as a rotation of carefully curated treasures made by other independent makers that can be found in the shop year-round. Everything you find here is a devotion to simple pleasures, personal talismans, kitchen table culture, ancestral connection, and purposeful beauty made well.
Big news: I opened a brick and mortar!
I am so excited to share that you can now shop in person at my new brick and mortar in Hāwī on Hawai’i Island. A long time dream has come true!

Story Time | A Short Essay On Simple Pleasures And Living In The Moment
I wrote this short essay a couple years ago, inspired by a memorable moment spent in the woods with a dear friend. As a brief reprieve from the current overwhelm of the world, I offer you this: a moment of pause to drop into an imaginary space of stripped down simplicity, of comforting quiet, and of safety in being a small creature living in loving connection with the great, wider world around you.
Coming Back Home | An Exercise in Connecting to Our Ancestors
Reflecting on the word “home” and the forms it takes in our lives — body, altar spaces, the shelters in which we live. Here’s an exercise in connecting with your ancestors through your own sense of joy.
How to Surrender to the Spirit of Creativity
I’m Haley, the artist and tintora (dyer) behind Hina Luna and owner and curator of Nido, a brick and mortar shop on Hawai’i island. It is my intention to create gathering places for feeling inspired to live life more slowly and thoughtfully, in connection to yourself, to the simple beauty and pleasures that exist all around you, to the thread that connects you to the tapestry of your ancestors, and to remind you of your magic.
The tools, talismans and artworks you’ll find here are intended to be as purposeful as they are beautiful; items to support your journey in living a more connected life.
