Chiaroscuro Puakala Pareo / Sarong Wrap

Puakala literally means thorny flower in Hawaiian. Like the better-known rose, its classic beauty is fringed with prickles, matching its character as a flower that thrives and beautifies its harsh environment.


Multi-purpose pareo or sarong. Fold in half to use as a beach cover-up, wrap like a scarf, shawl, tie behind the neck for a simple stylish dress. The possibilities are endless. Dimensions of fabric 72 inches x 53 inches. Limited quantity print. Hand-drawn fabric print illustrations. Designed, cut, and sewn in Hawai‘i on imported fabric.

Made with draping 100% rayon viscose twill fabric. Rayon viscose is a fiber that is intended as a silk substitute derived from wood pulp, making it a natural fabric that is more breathable than cotton. No plastic, polyester, or cotton used here; instead, enjoy this all-natural wood pulp fiber with a luxurious silk texture. Machine wash and dry on a gentle setting.
