Sumiye, Laurie

Laurie Sumiye Studio is a design studio owned and operated by Hawaiʻi eco artist and filmmaker Laurie Sumiye, based in Mililani, Hawaiʻi on Oahu.

The studio designs stationary, homewares and apparel which feature Laurieʻs bold, colorful drawings of Native Hawaiian species , many of which are endangered and threatened.  The studio focuses on elegance, fine quality, and sustainability in their products.  Laurie is committed to Hawaiian environmental issues and local communities by supporting conservation non-profits like the Conservation Council of Hawaiʻi and the Hawaiʻi Department of Forestry and Wildlife.  She volunteers her time in the field and donates her images for fundraising, environmental education and outreach efforts.
