Pōhakulani Pua Ka Hīnano Dress - Persimmon
This Pua Ka Hīnano Dress features our Pōhakulani design on Persimmon fabric with Cappuccino and Cream ink.
“Bliss” kind of expresses how I feel while gathering liko. In the quiet morning, the forest is alive and refreshed after a night of mist and rain. Gazing over the tops of young ʻōhiʻa trees, I search for the colorful orange, burgundy, and red shoots. These are my favorites to make lei. I also look for liko that “stretch out in the rain”. Usually plentiful after a long period of rain, the foot-long young growth isnʻt used for lei. Instead, these cherished liko are placed in a glass vase for our dinner table or maybe on the desk at work. These are the extra-special liko!
This liko was cut especially for Haku Hoʻopai. She has danced with Nālani for the past thirty years, and also worked at Sig Zane Designs. I love her as one of my daughters! This design was my gift to her upon her marriage!
This layout was created and named, for part of Hakuʻs name, by Kūhaʻo.
