Print: Auwai is the ditch or canal that brings in fresh water to the Lo‘i Kalo. The print shows the swirling water pushing up against the sides of the dirt canal.
I love the sound of the auwai at the Lo‘i, the tinkling, trickling of the water, and the reflection of the sky on the moving water.
Dominant Dyes: Indigo, Mahogany Bark
Pūkoʻa Studios Product Mana‘o:
Metals are gold or silver plated brass or stainless steel unless otherwise noted.
Kapa is a sustainable textile made from Native Hawaiian and other natural materials. Taking care of it will ensure longevity, but with substantial wear these pieces will begin to fade, degrade and can eventually be composted.
All products sold by Pūkoʻa Studios are one of a kind.
Kapa making is an intensive native process done entirely by hand. Each piece is handcrafted starting in the garden to hand cutting and assembling. While pieces may share similarities, no two are identical. If you place an order for an item that has multiple variations pictured, you will receive one of the pictured variations.
All sales final, exchanges available for damaged or faulty items. No guarantee that item received will share all characteristics of original item.
