Truly wearable art, this piece was fabricated from a small watercolor and pen and ink drawing on Kapa. As a new Kapa maker, I had a vision in mind that I wanted to achieve, but I wasnʻt sure which mediums would work on the Kapa. From this piece, and 2 others, the series "R(E)volutions" was born.
"Sacrifice", represents Eddie Aikauʻs sacrifice to save the Hokule‘a and the Hawaiian Renaissance.

This piece has no inner lining, to keep the painted image visible.
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.
