This Kula Pae Bucket Hat features our Kalehuaokeola print on Bone fabric with Cedar ink.
Lehua ʻāhihi has distinctive flower and leaf patterns. It is an uncommon hardy bush, growing on pali faces or kuahiwi on Oʻahu where wind, rain, and mist play. The flower buds are held in the highest esteem and are praised in song and dance. This special image was created for, and gifted to, our cousin Keolalani Hanoa of Punaluʻu, Kaʻū.
Fronting the former Hawaiian Village, Kula Pae is a familiar coastline of Keaukaha. I have heard stories of Tūtū Edith and her hoaloha frequenting the area, fishing for their favorites. Views across the ocean to Hilo Palikū and Mauna Kea were especially memorable from this vantage point. Kula Pae, when translated, means “washed up on the plains.”
Comfortable and cool, our 100% cotton bucket hats can literally top things off! The brim is padded and quilted to maintain its shape and the hat is lined. Sizes small through large offer an ideal fit just in case there might be a stiff breeze. (BTW if a gust happens to drop your hat into a puddle, fear not as these are washable!)
Bucket Hats are Unisex
