Kai Palaoa Kaipoʻi - Black
This Kaipoʻi features our Kai Palaoa print on Black fabric with Azure and Quicksilver ink.
In recongnition of the international year of the Reef, we forge two elements. The handwritten words speak of the creation of the ʻākoʻakoʻa- the coral reef- beginning with the Wa ʻākahi, the first age of the Kumulipo: from the darkness came life. The nalu and moku, the ʻohe Kāpala, are images that express the activity that happens above the coral reef. Wave upon wave, breaking above the coral reef, all while the island continues to grown above and below.
The Aloha Hoodie is 100% cotton and meant for that sail to Chinaman’s Hat at sunset. It’s also perfect for that boat ride between Namotu and Tavarua. I’m sure that it’ll work for the visit to Kani Ka Pila Grille at the edge of Waikīkī Beach.
Kaipoʻi is a term to describe the wave as it “covers” and “folds” over. Being inside the wave is a happy place, in the moment, and undeniably wonderful!
