This Kaipoʻi Hoodie features our Hulihia Kīlauea print on Cloud fabric and Candy Blue ink.
Over this past year here on Hawaiʻi island, we’ve witnessed one of the most explosive volcanic flows in a few decades. It’s this raw energy, destruction and creation that reminds us of our place in these environmental cycles. Recognition and regard for this energy is a prerequisite for living here in Hilo. Hulihia chants document historically these times of change. A shift of what is to what will be created.
A fresh flow at first look resembles a barren landscape but as a kid I’ve always marveled at the iridescence and reflective quality that new lava holds. This contradiction of a flow clearing the land and in turn creating new land is what Hulihia chants specialize in documenting.
The hoodie is a personal favorite! It takes me to that special place where I feel the wind at my cheeks, the waves breaking on the outside reef, and the front pouch pocket adds a sense of security… Reminiscent of life in Honolulu in the 60s, I am inspired to abandon care and run free!
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!
