This Lūhaupua Dress features our Maluihi design on Brick fabric with Black ink.
Lehua ʻāhihi has distinctive flower and leaf patterns. It is an uncommon hardy bush, growing on pali faces or kuahiwi on Oʻahu where wind, rain, and mist play. The flower buds are held in the highest esteem and are praised in song and dance. This special image was created for, and gifted to, our cousin Keolalani Hanoa of Punaluʻu, Kaʻū.
Lūhaupua is a wind in the district of ʻŌlaʻa, south of the Hilo district. Translating to “the wind that scatters the dew and the blossoms” this energy is one of many in Puna. Within our Makaniʻoluʻolu Collection, the Lūhaupua Dress became a popular piece. Button up front, a short oriental collar, and the tea length makes it easy wear. More than a decade has passed as we re-introduce this style!
Fabric is 45% tencel and 55% linen and is machine washable. Model is wearing size XXS.
