This beautiful Pareo - Maiʻa from Tag Aloha is available at Pop-Up Mākeke and features a vibrant blue color with a banana leaf print.
The regal look of the young banana leaf reminds us of lush tropical vegetation in Maunawili on the windward side of Oahu. The elegance of how each leaf bends and dances in the wind creates a beautiful feast for the eyes.
Bananas (Mai’a) commonly grow in valleys or sheltered patches around the islands. They are planted around lush dwellings or on well-watered banks of taro loi. This print will remind you of the beauty and utility of the Mai'a. It will also remind you of the Hawaiian phrase Aohe hua o ka maia i ka la hookahi. (Bananas do not fruit in a single day.) This can serve as a gentle reminder to us all that good things take time.
The Hawaiian pareo can be worn as a beach cover-up, as a dress, as a skirt, or as a shawl. It can even be used for more than just a clothing or accessory piece. If you don't have anything to sit on in the sand or on the grass, it would make a great blanket as well. The versatility of this beautiful piece means that it can be used for anything you can think of!
If you have a friend or family member that loves extra accessories or clothing, this would make a great birthday present or Christmas present for the fashionista in your life. It is sure to add a pop of color to any wardrobe and can be used on a daily basis!
