About us


Malia + Kai was born when my daughter Malia became super picky and hard to dress as a toddler. I wanted her to have the kind of wardrobe that I would wear and all she wanted was comfort. As a compromise I started making her dresses that are made from soft and stretchy jersey material, are easy breezy to put on because of the cross back design and have no snaps, zippers, ties or complicated closures. A couple of years later we became Malia + Kai when Kai was added to the family with the intention of someday soon adding something for boys too (still a work in progress). We are proud to say everything is handmade in North Carolina to this day.
