We feature our Kilohana Sig Silk Tie in our Loulu design.
The only native palm found in our islands, the fronds were used widely in the old days. Weavings are now very valuable because of its intricate qualities. Woven in strips often at 1/16", the hats are treasures handed down through generations. Punaluʻu, Kaʻū was once famous for the loulu and the hats that were woven from fronds of that grove.
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.
