Mauna is Mountain in Hawaiian Language. This is a very common motif in Hawaiian design, but has a particularly special meaning at this point in history. Many Hawaiians are fighting to keep our most sacred Mauna, Maunakea, free from another foreign telescope. Specifically the largest telescope in the world which would cause devastating damage to the people, the mountain and the surrounding environment.

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.
