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.
