This pareu features our Pua Ka ʻŌpuhi print on Lemon fabric with Tangerine ink.
We used to hike the trails of Mānoa Valley, gathering the ginger flower to cleanse ourselves when we got to the mountain pools. They were most plentiful towards the end of summer and it was the hottest time of the year so it was perfect! The ʻŌpuhi, also known as ʻAwapuhi Kuahiwi, is our “shampoo ginger!”
The pareu is Hawai‘i in a wrap around lifestyle: versatile, comfortable, and limitless in its uses. What started as a hobby of making sarongs as birthday and Christmas gifts in the late 70's, grew into a company because of overwhelming demand! The two-yard length of fabric is seamed at the edges and rectangular in its finished shape -- great for use as a table cloth, wall hanging, or folded and tied as a carry-all. Strapless, over the shoulder or tied at the waist, the pareu drapes beautifully over a swimsuit, undergarment or nothing at all!
Fabric is machine-washable 100% cotton broadcloth.
