Item Description

This pareu features Sig Zane's Hua Hekili (naupaka plant) print in coffee and white. The love story of Naupaka, a woman of aliʻi blood, and Kaui, the commoner man who she was in love with, has been told for generations. Their marriage was frowned upon and they separated, one in the uplands, the other near the sea. The blossoms of the Naupaka Kahakai and the Naupaka Kuahiwi both manifest as only half-flowers. Only when reunited can they be made whole again. The fruit of the Naupaka Kahakai (the male version) appears as hail, earning it the name Hua Hekili, or thunder fruit.

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.
