This Hawaii Made Pareu features our ʻIeʻie Pareu print on Wasabi fabric with Gecko ink.
The 'ie'ie plant grows in the uplands and is often placed on the hula altar because it is kinolau, a vegetable form of Laka, Hawaiian goddess of the dance. The aerial roots were woven into various baskets, including traps for mountain fish and shrimp. For this pareu design, I focused on the pua rather than the plant over all, as I did with the aloha shirt design of the 'ie'ie.
