Lei Hoaka Pullover Aloha Shirt - Hunter Green
This Pullover Aloha Shirt features our Lei Hoaka print on Hunter Green fabric with Maizeink.
I started making lei with koa in the early 1990s. I used the crescent-shaped petioles,
braiding them together with ti leaves.It was my offering of kinolau
to be placed on the kuahu hula at our hālau.
Hoaka is the second night of the moon phase. The new waxing moon has a similar shape to the koa petioles. We intuitively called this design Lei Hoaka, honoring koa and the second day of the moon phase.
A lei koa from Lahela Camara has inspired me for years. She had used the smaller koa leaves to create a most refined and aesthetic lei.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Pullover features a half placket and is designed slightly wider to allow over-the-head dressing with ease. Coconut buttons are featured on the stand-up, button-down collar and on the front placket. Tuck it in or leave it out over the trousers for a more casual look. Either way, it's the perfect touch of crisp aloha!
Model is 5ʻ5" and is wearing a size small.
Hang to dry.
Iron on reverse.
