This hat was handcrafted at Kimura's Lauhala Shop in Holualoa, Hawaii. It's perfect for a man or woman and has a sweeping crown style--stunning work! Included is a haole koa seed hatband. This hat measures approximately 23 inches and has no sweatband for easy fitting.
Lauhala, lau meaning leaf in Hawaiian, refers to the leaves of the Hala Tree (Pandanus tectorius). Many cultures weave the leaves of the P. tectorius to create useful items such as baskets, mats and hats. Though it is a long and arduous process to prepare the leaves for weaving, the final products are beautiful works of art with a pleasing earthy feel.
