Red Kona Lauhala Derby with Melanistic Pheasant lei hulu

“Red” Kona Lauhala Derby with Melanistic Pheasant Lei Hulu
This Derby papale was handmade by Cherie in July 2015 using the maka oeno pattern. The hat is 22 inches (head size) and has a 3 inch tall crown and 1-3/4 inch wide brim. The koana (strips) plaited are 1/16 inch wide. It is Cherie’s first attempt at weaving “red lauhala” which is very time consuming because only the reddish/dark parts of each leaf is used. The lauhala is from Honaunau, South Kona, Hawaii. Sweatband sewn in for comfort. This lei hulu humu papa was handmade (2006) by Iris Lambert in Kealakekua, Hawaii. They looked really nice together and thought someone might want to buy them as a set. US$500 plus postage. Shipped USPS Priority.
