This Aʻeloa Blouse features our Kapalaiwenaʻula design on Papaya fabric with Butter ink.
ʻIliahi Paredes had requested to use the palapalai design for the hōʻike of his first class. This is my gift to him. The translation of this name speaks of a special red tinge found on some fronds. But this name also speaks of a close relationship for I have known ʻIliahi for many years. This fern is kinolau to Laka, a sacred plant for the hula kuahu, and is dedicated to Hiʻiakaikapoliopele.
