This pareu features Sig Zane's Ma'ili (arrowroot) print in Cappuccino. The starch plant, commonly known as the arrowroot plant, known through HawaiÊ»i as Pia, is found throughout the Pacific and Southeast Asia. From the tubers a nutritious starch can be obtained. The process to obtain the starch was labor intensive, but once complete, the end-product could be stored for future use. The design shows the beauty of the plant when in full bloom during the month of August.
The pareu is Hawai‘i in a wrap around lifestyle: versatile, comfortable, and limitless in its uses. What started as a hobby of making sarongs as birthday and Christmas gifts in the late 70's, grew into a company because of overwhelming demand! The two-yard length of fabric is seamed at the edges and rectangular in its finished shape -- great for use as a table cloth, wall hanging, or folded and tied as a carry-all. Strapless, over the shoulder or tied at the waist, the pareu drapes beautifully over a swimsuit, undergarment or nothing at all! Fabric is machine-washable 100% cotton broadcloth. Made and printed in Hawaii exclusively by Hawaii designer Sig Zane.
