Slowtide x SZ Iholena Towel

A native banana, Iholena, is a somewhat rare variety.  In Kāʻū, the Iholena continues to grow. The maiʻa, banana, is a kinolau or body form of Kanaloa, deity of the sea.  

Many uses of the plant and its parts make it valuable!  The stalk and leaves are most important in cooking in the imu, promoting steam and helping to retain heat.  Ritual meals are served on the banana leaf, both as a shield and a protector of both the food and its participants.
