    Pa‘akai Pareo

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

    One day a young woman caught too much fish for her family to eat. She began to cry as she is saddened by the thought of taking more than she needed from the kai. Pele created a rainbow and told the young woman to follow it, and it led her to the shore, where she finds crystals. She rubs the fish with the crystals, and it preserves the food for her ‘ohana to eat another day. This is said to be the first Hawaiian salt. Its name, pa‘akai, means to hold fast to the ocean.

    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.

    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!
