This Kālaʻe Long Wallet features our Kalākolokai print on Grey fabric with Coal and Papaya ink.
The ʻilima and the kaunaʻoa are friends found growing together at the oceanside. Although the kaunaʻoa is a parasite, it depends on the ʻilima as its host. The name given to this design expresses the colors of the blossom and the kaunaʻoa. Both are rich hues of orange. Using the sun as the metaphor for both flower and vine, the name describes the sun moving from east to west during the day along the shore.
Hand-cut and sewn one-at-a-time, our leather wallets are made by Hiro in the outskirts of Tokyo. The leather is split and shaved in Japan so it becomes lightweight. Our printed poplin fabric is then sewn together to create our Kālaʻe wallets.
Measurements are approximately 7.5" long X 4" tall X 1" wide.
