    Sky Blue Lau Hala Women's Midi Wrap Dress

    Size
    2 items left
    • This Sky Blue Lau Hala Women's Midi Wrap Dress from David Shepard Hawaii is available at Pop-Up Mākeke and is designed, cut, and sewn in Hawai'i on imported fabric.

      The midi dress includes bell sleeves and has a v-neck design with a string tie in the back. It comes with an optional long matching fabric tie for use at the waist. This limited quantity print is hand-drawn onto the fabric.

      It is made with draping 100% Tencel which is a sustainably made eucalyptus-based fabric. Tencel is a fiber that is intended as a silk substitute that is derived from wood pulp. It is a natural fabric in the same family as Modal that is more breathable and soft than cotton. There is no plastic, polyester, or cotton used here. It is, instead, an all-natural sustainable wood pulp fiber with a luxurious silky texture.

      Features:

      • Material: 100% Tencel
      • Note: The model is wearing a size x-small.
    • Machine washable and dry on a gentle setting.
    • Lau hala, the Hawaiian word for the leaf of the hala tree (Pandanus tectorius), has been central to Polynesian and Hawaiian culture since time immemorial. Lau hala weaving, like all art, requires patience and practice.

      The leaves undergo a lengthy process of preparation to make them dried and pliable. Skillful mastery of technique is needed to use lau hala to make a wide array of objects. The hala mat is the most well-known product of lau hala weaving, symbolic of the home and its comforts. Hats, baskets, bracelets, and much more can be made from Lau Hala.

      Although lau hala weaving is a practical art, its artist’s finest creations are truly embodiments of the love of art itself.
