Welcome to Tropical J’s online. We are Hawaii’s premier manufacturer of fabric awnings and canopies, and reseller of quality furniture and umbrellas. We have been in business since 1988 and as of 2022, we have dedicated our manufacturing division to commercial and construction projects. We have a wonderful new line of quality metal framed Umbrellas for the residential market. And we’ll be showing them this summer at Hakuone,

Our Awnings and Canopies are made to order. They are an evolution of design and manufacturing techniques aimed to combat Hawaii’s harsh environment. In 2024, we are introducing a line of pre-engineered commercial canopies designed to offer our custom structures at the lowest price with our signature quality. Learn more at our Canopies page.

In 2024, wood-framed umbrellas were no longer cost-effective to manufacture. We have found a company that manufactures an umbrella frame we’ve tested and we believe in, and we are offering a new line of metal umbrellas with a premium cover this year. Please learn more on the Umbrellas page.

Keeping Our Ohana Covered, Rain or Shine

30 years ago Tropical J’s was hand making handheld umbrellas and selling them at craft fairs hosted by the Pacific Handcrafter’s Guild. From a garage in Mililani to our second manufacturing center in Sand Island, innovation, creativity and quality have always been our values. Learn about us, how our products developed, and where we’re going in 2024 here.

What our Clients Say

Tropical J’s transformed the look of our building! (Ours) was a big job with very detailed measurements and angles and they were spot on. The install crew was professional and they worked very hard (even worked 12 hours a day) so we could re-open the restaurant. I would recommend Tropical J’s in any commercial application


My family needed to fix an awning that needed new pulleys and a new rope. I called Tropical J’s and spoke with Jeri. Jeri gave me a quote by lunch that day. I would go back to Tropical J’s and I would recommend them as well.


This was the second set of umbrellas we purchased from Tropical J’s. The installers were extremely prompt and even came back to make sure everything settled just right. I will definitely be calling Tropical J’s back in another 9 years for our third set of umbrellas.
