    Hawai'i Ahupua'a Microfiber Beach Towel

    Traditional Hawaiian life was based on the ahupua'a system of land management. An ahupua'a, or land division, was typically wedge-shaped and extended from the top of the mountain into the outer edge of the ocean reef. ʻŌiwi maintained an agricultural system that contained two major classes: irrigated and rain-fed systems. In the irrigated systems, they mostly grew taro (kalo), and in the rain-fed systems, they grew mostly ʻuala (sweet potatoes), yams, and dryland taro, in addition to other small crops. 

    ʻŌiwi believed that the land, the sea, the clouds, and all of nature were interconnected, which is why they used all of the resources around them to reach the desired balance in life. Sustainability was maintained by the konohiki and kahuna—priests, who restricted the fishing of certain species during specific seasons. Over time, through battles and political alliances, boundaries have moved or been combined, and some with the same names have been divided even further throughout history.

    Made from absorbent, lightweight suede microfiber that’s soft to the touch yet durable and fast-drying, these stylish, microbe-resistant, 100% suede microfiber towels are sand-resistant. They're a great way to dry off after a surf session, workout at the gym, work in the field, stay dry on the snow slopes, or as a simple topper for your yoga mat.
