It was always a dream of Banana Wind owner Nina Mehring to travel with her two children - Zeb, 15, and Marley, 12 - hoping to instill in them more global and cultural awareness. Banana Wind was born eight years ago to facilitate that travel by developing home accent and gift items inspired by their home on Maui.
Banana Wind is filled with eco-friendly, sustainable, unique items from around the world - found nowhere else. The store features home accent pieces such as baskets, artwork, candles, incense, jewelry, ceramics, wood carvings and picture frames, as well as Hawaii's largest sea shell collection comprised of shells that can be found in Hawaii.
Everything in Banana Wind has its own story - where it came from, what it's made of, what makes it unique and its inspiration. Call 661-1600.
