This Kālaʻe Long Wallet features our Palaiʻula print on Black fabric with Eucalyptus ink.
In the soft light under the ʻōhiʻa and koa, the palapalai is nourished by the moisture gathered. Only the best fronds are selected to be made into lei: the mature, fully developed, and dark stems. The offering of the lei palapalai on the kuahu hula is accompanied by oli, dedicated to laka.
Palaiʻula are my favorites! the red-tinged edges make the lei extra special!
Hand-cut and sewn one-at-a-time, our leather wallets are made by Hiro in the outskirts of Tokyo. The leather is split and shaved in Japan so it becomes lightweight. Our printed poplin fabric is then sewn together to create our Kālaʻe wallets.
Measurements are approximately 7.5" long X 4" tall X 1" wide.
