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.

Sustainability

We've partnered with some stellar organizations who are taking garment printing into the 21st century with DTG (direct-to-garment) printing technology. This means, everything at Maoli is made to order and we don’t have a warehouse full of clothes lying around. This reduces the clothing waste in our business to nearly zero. 

Our eco-friendly water-based inks provide unlimited color combinations and make detailed prints pop without reducing their vibrancy in the wash. Reducing toxicity in the environment is one of our top priorities. 

Whenever possible, we also use organic, recycled, or sustainable fabrics to manufacture our apparel. We aim to make our products good for your body and for the ʻāina (land).

We encourage our customers and our community to demand more from us when it comes to sustainability. Have an idea? Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
