BRELAN SUGAHARA (SEW ALOHA)
Brelan Sugahara, born and raised in Hanalei, is one of the most talented artists around. He hadn’t sewn a day in his life until a few years ago after he was passed down an old sewing machine, where he quickly learned how to master sewing and embroidery. Brelan started to create amazing one-off and custom pieces out of his garage in Costa Mesa, California and Sew Aloha was born. From patches, to hats, to one-of-a-kind art pieces, Brelan incorporates his Hawaii roots into all of this work. If you are lucky to own a unique Sew Aloha piece, you can appreciate and understand all of his heart and soul that goes into his every creation. Literally embroidered Aloha.
