Pareu Seablue Niulani

Size Guide

This Pareu features our Niulani Pareu print in Aqua

Niulani Pareu:  Niu, or coconut palms, are found in tropical coastal areas around the world.  The name coconut stems from the Portuguese cocos, meaning grinning face, for the three small holes on a coconut shell that resemble human facial features.  In Hawai'i, niu is kinolau (vegetable form) for the god Kü.  All parts of the niu were used.  Leaves for weaving, the husk of the shell was braided into sennit, the meat and the milk of the fruit for nourishment, the shells for eating vessels, and the trunk for pahu drums.

The pareu is Hawai‘i in a wrap around lifestyle: versatile, comfortable, and limitless in its uses. What started as a hobby of making sarongs as birthday and Christmas gifts in the late 70's, grew into a company because of overwhelming demand! The two-yard length of fabric is seamed at the edges and rectangular in its finished shape -- great for use as a table cloth, wall hanging, or folded and tied as a carry-all. Strapless, over the shoulder or tied at the waist, the pareu drapes beautifully over a swimsuit, undergarment or nothing at all! Fabric is machine-washable 100% cotton broadcloth.
