We feature our Kilohana Sig Silk Tie in our Lei Maile design.
Abundant rainfall, cool temperatures, and the volcanic soil promote the growth of maile. Stretching for the sun, scented vines climb among ʻōhiʻa, ʻieʻie, and hāpuʻu. Growing in profusion, lei maile is a favorite icon of Hilo!
Kapa are recognized by their quality, Kilohana is one of the finest, often identified as the topmost layer. We borrow the term to describe our fabrication of ties, made from Chinese silk! Supple, soft, and charming, we offer an accent of color with art of Hawaiian life.
