    Hilo Pareo

    This Hilo Pareo from Aloha Modern is available at Pop-Up Mākeke and will become your new best friend thanks to its versatility. 

    The word Hilo has multiple meanings, but one of the main definitions is “to braid or twist.” Hilo is the first, or new moon, and it was derived from the earlier two meanings. As the slender new moon sets in the western sky, it often has a twisted appearance, thus having the name Hilo. Because this is the first moon, it acts as a navigator for the moons to follow.

    Traditionally it was felt that this was a good moon for deep-sea fishing but bad for reef fishing and gathering of any below-ground roots and vegetables. Hilo is also a type of grass, mau‘u Hilo, as well as a variety of sweet potatoes.

    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. It would also make a great gift for any friend or family member, or it can add a pop of color to your own wardrobe collection!
