This Paniau Dress features our Pua Palikū design on Off White, Emerald, Azure fabric.
The Pua Palikū is the latest printing of our precious Alula. Found growing on the steep cliffs at Nā Pali, North Shore of Kauaʻi, the alula has been brought back to a very popular state of proliferation through extensive planting. The once almost-extinct gem is a success story for a Hawaiian beauty!
Featuring the newest design Pua Palikū, we have pulled out the long-requested Paniau Dress from the archives. The button-front dress is featured in an organic linen in a natural color way. Nice in warm Waipiʻo Valley or good for hanahana in Kāneʻohe, this dress can cover lots of ground! Limited in quantities and sizes. (This is an experiment! Let us know if you enjoy this fabrication!)
Twenty something years ago, I met up with Hayato Takasu. We began doing projects together, including some wonderful umbrellas, linen clothes, and sharing some of our art. We have travelled together, surfed hours, and even toasted Hibiki for anniversaries! This year, we asked for him to play with us. He helped us produce our latest wahine wares, tees, and even a tenugui! The craftsmanship and the integrity of production in Japan makes me so proud. We are happy with these items and hope you’ll get to try them!
