    The best handcrafted Koa products around. I wish I bought the bowl I was looking at when I was there.  more »

    We ended up buying two items here. A necklace for our daughter ($20) and a clock shaped like Kauai ($70). They had many beautiful products. The store was a bit pricey. One of the owners checked us out...  more »

    Well worth a visit, but you might want to leave your credit cards in the car. There is some beautiful stuff here, as well as some kitsch--something for everyone. Koa is the consummate renewable resour...  more »

    I'd give it 5 stars if they had koa watches. Otherwise, great products and friendly service.

    Wonderful Hawaiian made items, though not all from Kauai. Beautiful work. Worth a stop, just to look, if not to buy

    The Koa tree only grows in the Hawaiian islands. It can only be harvested if the tree is dead or dying. This makes the wood itself one of the most expensive woods in the world. It comes in different shades and is valued by the grain or the curl you can see on the wood. This woodworking store makes many one-of-a-kind home decor and office pieces - boxes, picture frames, lamps, pens, wine stoppers, jewelry, etc. all crafted by hand and made in Kauai. Every time we visit Kauai we stop here to buy one of The Koa Store's gorgeous picture frames to "frame" a special moment in our lives. Each frame is slightly different in color and tonality because of the uniqueness of the Koa wood. The ladies wrap the frame tightly with plenty of paper and we always put it in our check-in luggage. It's never damaged after we unpack our usually heavy suitcase. Off the Kuhio Hwy, there is a small parking lot attached to the store.They also sell Koa lumber if you are a woodworker yourself.

    Wood works of art are fantastic! A must stop for souvenirs.
