Our products are the truest definition of Made in Hawaiʻi.
The plants we use to produce the Kapa, along with the dyes, are primarily grown in our Waimānalo garden. A smaller portion are harvested from around the island of ʻOahu from generous friends and neighbors gardens and properties. The Kapa and dyes are then processed initially in Waimānalo and then are brought to our studio in Chinatown.
Sustainability is one of our core goals here at Pūkoʻa Studios. We try to translate that into every aspect of our packaging. We use coconut fibers from our garden, recycled fabric, and organic hemp to package our products! For shipping, we primarily repurpose used cardboard boxes and ship mainly through USPS.
Kapa Process: From Harvest to Textile
Wearable Kapa is our vision for Hawai'is representation in fashion. Our goal is to create modern Hawaiian fashion using traditional Hawaiian practices and materials, connecting our past, present, and future. By doing this, we hope to represent our culture in a beautiful, accessible, and sustainable way.Shop Wearable Kapa
Although artist Page Pūko'a Chang has spent the last several years building her Kapa making practice and honing her skills as a Kapa maker, her art career began with an education in fine art and a passion for oil painting and print making. She has carried this passion throughout her life and continues to practice in these mediums whenever possible.
Kapa Fine Art
All Kapa pieces have been harvested and traditionally processed into Kapa cloth by the artist. Much of the Wauke has been grown by the artist, as well as the dye plants used for color and design.Shop Kapa Fine Art
