I haʻaheo no ka lawaiʻa i ka lako i ka ʻupena // “The fishermen may be well proud when well supplied with nets”

“Moku ʻUpena” or loosely translated to “island net” is not only a nod to our lawaiʻa (fishermen) and the practice of ʻupena hoʻolei or throwing net but the years of kilo (observation) to perfect and learn such a skill. It is practices like these woven with kūpuna ‘Ike (ancestral knowledge) that are generational keepsakes much like the exceptionally well-made net of ʻolona, hau and now sugi that we are so honored to carry and pass on to our keiki today.

Each piece is designed and carefully handprinted in Kāne'ohe, O’ahu
