    Hāwane Sunshine Women's Midi Dress

    • This Hāwane Sunshine Women's Midi Dress from David Shepard Hawaii is available at Pop-Up Mākeke and features a limited quantity of print and hand-drawn fabric print illustrations.

      This women's v-neck dress includes bell sleeves and a string tie in the back. It also comes with a long matching fabric tie for optional use at the waist. This beautiful dress is made with draping 100% lyocell, a rayon twill fabric.

      Lyocell is a fiber that is intended as a silk substitute derived from wood pulp. It is a natural fabric in the same family as Modal and Tencel that is more breathable than cotton. It is a luxury eco-fabric that is made in a closed-loop cycle from sustainably grown wood, often eucalyptus. There is no plastic, polyester, or cotton used on this gorgeous dress. Instead, you can enjoy this all-natural, sustainable wood pulp fiber with a luxurious silk texture.

      This is the perfect dress to add to your wardrobe collection. It features light and natural colors and a gorgeous design that is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. Plus, the best part is that it is so versatile you can wear it to a casual brunch with your girlfriends or to a wedding for your loved ones.


      • Fabric: 100% Lyocell (Rayon Twill fabric)
      • Designed, Cut, and Sewn in Hawai'i on Imported Fabric
    • Machine washable and dryer safe on a gentle setting.
    • Loulu palm, or Pritchardia, is the only native Hawaiian palm genus. It is useful for its large fronds, a shield from the sun and rain, as well as for weaving items such as hats. Its fruit, hāwane, was once considered delicious to eat.

      Unfortunately, rats that arrived for the first time on the islands with the first Polynesian canoes also loved the fruit of this palm. Once a dominant forest species, a thousand years of rats eating most of their seeds resulted in scattered remnant populations of these formerly ubiquitous palms.

      One species, Pritchardia hillebrandii, is featured in this print. An islet off the coast of Moloka'i has an untouched strand of this particular blue-green palm species, giving a sense of what a forest of loulu would look like.
