North Shore-based designer Cassandra Rull conquered the surf-chic market long ago with her breezy beach and active wear. Now, she’s giving her styles an added personal touch. Head over to the handmade shop section on her website for one-of-a-kind creations made from a mix of new and repurposed fabrics. Think comfy, color-blocked sack dresses, racerback tops and fun rompers in vintage Japanese silk and coral or chartreuse knits to brighten your everyday Island adventures. shopcassandrarull.com

Mike and Wendy Hee started making soap as a hobby, a fun way to merge their passion for everything sustainable and all-natural with their love for D.I.Y. projects. Now, you can find the couple’s soaps and laundry detergent at boutiques across the island, from Guava Shop in Hale‘iwa to Green Mountain in Mānoa. You’ll love the local, organic and natural ingredients almost as much as the adorable packaging: muslin tea bags housing green tea soaps, mini coffee sacks for the Kona coffee version and teeny charcoal bags for the charcoal bars. mymanoa.com
