Hawaiian lauhala hat anoni

Lauhala weaving (actually “plaiting”) has always been a treasured skill in our Hawaiian culture. Ancient weavers were able to create sails, mats, baskets, and other necessities just using technique and leaves of the hala (pandanus) tree. Today, experienced artisans are able to create wonderful works including hats, purses, cushions, and other accessories utilizing the different colors of lauhala here in Hawai‘i, and creating unique designs.  Mahalo nui loa for supporting traditional Hawaiian arts in the 21st century!
