Paiko stems from a love of nature, design, and this place we call home, Hawaii. Our name comes from Oahu's Paiko Beach, where in 2010  Tamara Rigney started a floral studio in her tutu's garage.  Craving a community outside of her studio, Tamara was drawn to Kaka'ako, and inspired by the energy of the neighborhood, decided to open Paiko as a brick and mortar. With support from friends, and close buddy Courtney Monahan signed on for the ride,  Paiko as we know it was created.   Since opening in 2012 they have been constantly learning, evolving, and working late nights, but both Courtney and Tamara can agree that this is the most fun ‘job’ they could have imagined.
