Anna Maria Kahalekulu

Native Hawaiian


Raised primarily in Colorado, Anna Kahalekulu (Native Hawaiian) is the daughter of a Hawaiian father and Caucasian mother. Her dad took the family home to Hawai’i often so they could reconnect. Hula was Anna’s first cultural art medium that she learned. In 2007, she moved home and settled on Maui, where she began learning fashion and traditional weaving.

Anna’s brand, Kūlua, made its debut in 2015 at the MAMo Wearable Art Show hosted by the PA’I Foundation. She has shown collections annually for five years in the Maui show and twice in Honolulu. Kūlua has part-time and full-time employees, seven wholesale accounts, a storefront, and an online shop.
