The Kahoʻokipanui Collection was inspired by Sharayah's brother, Dillon Matthew Kahoʻokipanui Ah Chong. In Hawaiian, Kahoʻokipanui means “The Grand Welcome.”

When creating this print, Sharayah knew she wanted it to represent everything her brother is now, and is becoming. Upon talking with her parents about the meaning of his name, they shared that Dillon was a late gift to their family that was much needed, and that God put him into our lives for a reason.  Dillon is “grand” in everything he does, but in the most subtle way.  Grand, but with a humble and respectful heart.  He is reserved, yet the hardest worker in the room; funny, witty, smart, and quite the go-getter.  He strives to be the best at what he does and his presence is always known. 

This print depicts the design of a Honu or turtle shell. Here in Hawaiʻi, the Honu (turtle) is a symbol of good luck, or represents the navigator and the eternal link between man, the land, and the sea.  To swim with a Honu is magic, to watch them bask in the sand is calming, and when a Honu reaches shore, its welcome is grand!  What the Honu stands for and all it represents is exactly her brother, Dillon.  

Enjoy the “Grand Welcome” of the Kahoʻokipanui collection.
