Our Foundry


In the early 1900s, Kaka‘ako’s industrial roots emerged with the establishment of Honolulu Iron Works, a metal foundry and machine shop that would come to revolutionize Hawai‘i’s sugar industry with its hardware. Although the iron works shut its doors in 1973, this spirit of entrepreneurship and industry remains still today.

Attune to this spirit of fortitude, Foundry is a quarterly journal for Our Kaka‘ako reflective of the flourishing urban community from which it’s crafted. Thoughtfully written with a modern design, Foundry brings together a growing community of artists and artisans, focusing in on a lifestyle of intent and innovation.
