Kūhiō bay in Keaukaha is a favorite among poʻe for many a weekend activity. Named for Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole and located just on the inside of the Hilo Breakwater, it has a striking view of Mauna Kea and Historic Hilo Town. Prince Kūhiō is perhaps best known for his efforts to establish the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, which resulted in certain public lands being made available to Hawaiians on five of the eight major islands.
We name this handbag for him as a way to carry on his achievements, and as a mahalo for everything that he has done for us. Hand-cut and sewn piece by piece by our dear friend Hiro, they are one of kind. The attention to detail, combined with the long-standing history of Japanese craftsmanship, is sure to attract even the most traditional of persons.
Fancy for that night on the town or use it everyday. The possibilities are endless!
