This carry-all ʻeke by Hilo girl Marlene Nakanishi is refined and updated from her last Kamaʻehu Tote of the past. Small touches make the overall appearance better and lined with the best fabrication.The name of this carry-all is Haʻaheo, celebrating an elementary school in the area just north of Wailuku River. Their views to the East from Puna, south to Volcano, and of course, of Hilo Bay are extraordinary! We honor all teachers as they carry an important kuleana of teaching the next generations of keiki!
When I was young, we lived with Popo Edith on Skyline Drive in Honolulu. She had a greenhouse filled with orchids and ferns. Her favorites were the purple honohono and the maidenhair ferns. Although our family later moved to Kane'ohe, each visit to Popo was not complete if I didn't run down the hill to see her greenhouse. The clay pots were filled with the maidenhair ferns, lovingly placed in rows. These ferns were her pride and joy. This design honors Popo Edith and her contributions to my life.
Measures 14" tall X 22" long X 7" wide.
