Manaʻo Behind The Print

I’ve always been drawn to Kapa, fabric made from Wauke which is the paper mulberry tree. The outer layer of bark was scrapped off and the inner bark was soaked and beaten down to create the fabric. The designs that were stamped onto the fabric with natural plant dies always caught my eye. They were geometric designs and patterns that replicated nature. It’s rare to find vintage bark cloth that fits,  I’m Momona. So I decided to create my own line of Kapa textile mea for the whole ‘Joan’s. I’ve intergraded signs that symbolize fish, Iwa birds, Pepeʻe which is Baby hāpuʻu fern shoots, liko lehua, and other geometric shapes to form this one of a kind ancestral print. Mahalo for tuning in and reading my mana’o, I always create with intention & passion. I Look forward to seeing my creations on you!  - Kaila
