Paiko is the product of a love of nature, design, and Hawaii. Our name comes from Oahu's Paiko Beach, where in 2010 founder Tamara Rigney's started her first floral design studio in the garage of her grandmother. Craving a sense of community outside her studio, Tamara found herself drawn to Kaka'ako, and inspired by the energy of the neighborhood, decided to take Paiko to the form of a retail shop. With lots of support from friends, and close buddy Courtney Monahan signed on for the ride, Paiko as we know it was created. Since opening 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.
