NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN
Did you know that in ancient times, Hawaiians cultivated over 300 varieties of kalo (taro)? This design showcases 61 of the kalo varieties known today. Each kalo variety has a unique name and has been artistically stitched together to form the word, “kalo”.
This Kanu o ka ʻĀina design pays homage to the ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian proverb), “kalo kanu o ka ʻāina”. The proverb translates in English to “kalo plant of the land”, which likens kanaka maoli (Native Hawaiians) to the kalo plant - both being natives of the land.
Wear the Kanu o ka ʻĀina design if you support the cultivation of kalo, love embarking on culinary kalo adventures, or simply love to eat lūʻau, kalo or poi.
