We are Bryson and Kirsten, the creators and curators of The Sagitaurus Collective LLC.

 

Our life together has been one journey after the other. We met while on vacation, began a long-distance relationship, moved in together, and got married a few years after. Since teaming up, we have written several blogs and vlogs, created an LLC, self-published a poetry book,  got a puppy, bought our first home, and (Kirsten) even hopped on as a co-host and producer on an up-and-coming podcast.

This website is a collection of our creative projects. We love having the opportunity to share our journeys and passions with others and we hope that our life lessons (both triumphs and loses) will help to inspire you. Read on, explore, and experience the world with us.

About Us

Ka mo'olelo • Ang salaysay

In 2020, we lost our child in a miscarriage. We were extremely devastated. During our period of grieving, we tried to cope with the loss of our child by picking up different hobbies. We began making items using locally sourced and recycled materials. After showing our finished products to our friends and family, they encouraged us to begin sharing our creations with the world. Since then we have poured our energies into making artisanal crafts such as hand poured coco wax candles, wall decor, soaps, balms and prints. The product that outshined the rest was our upcycled Hawaiian Sun Can Candles. Although the pain of losing our child will never truly go away, we have made peace with the loss and find joy in offering a piece of our hearts. During one the darkest moments of our relationship came light. And that light came from making our candles.

E komo mai • Tuloy kayo

Our business is proudly Hawaiian and Filipino owned. Our aim is to spread the spirit of aloha with our candles and other creations. So whether you've moved off of the islands and want a little piece of home wherever you are, or if you've just fallen in love with the culture and relaxed vibes of Hawai'i, we are here to accommodate you. We believe in cultivating love and respect for the land; by nurturing it, it can give back all we need to sustain life. Every item we make is handcrafted right here on the beautiful island of O'ahu. And because we aim to treat every patron as a part of our Local Kine Tingz ‘Ohana, each project is made-to-order in small batches to ensure it is perfect just for you.

Ocean Conservancy is working with you to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges. Together, we create science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.

Hawai’i Land Trust

We are so humbled by the amount of love and support from all our customers, small/big business friends, and our family. Each and every one of you has made us, Local Kine Tingz, flourish into what it is today.
