OUR STORY

Island Pepe; "Pepe" is the Polynesian word for "Baby". 

Talofa lava and Malo e lelei!

We are the Masoe family and Valikoula family, co-founders of Island Pepe.

We come from a rich heritage of cultures spanning the tropical regions of the South Pacific. As parents, we share with many others a deep desire to pass on to our children the things which matter the most.

For us, this began with sharing the culture. We believe that a significant part of this begins with teaching them our native language through speech, song, visual words and illustrations – a tradition used by our ancestors. This, we believe, will create lasting and loving impressions for our children, like those we carry in our own childhood memories.

Island Pepe welcomes everyone, Polynesian or not, to come take a look at our modern and trendy baby apparel in various

Pasifika languages which are truly one-of-a-kind and perfect for your little ones!

OUR VISION

When our children are born, the first few sounds they hear are the words of welcome from us,

their aiga, fāmili, whānau, ohana and family.

Our goal is to help inspire our children, and parents alike, to preserve the

language/culture of our ancestors and share it with the world.
