Koa Kards Earrings
Don’t just own something made in Hawai’i, own something that is Hawai’i.
Koa (Acacia Koa) is the second most plentiful tree in Hawai’i. It is highly prized and endemic to Hawai’i. Our people used and continue to use Koa wood to build wa’a (canoes), hale (houses), hoe (paddles), papa he’e nalu (surfboards), ihe (spears), and mea hana (tools). Currently, the only place in the world where Koa wood is harvested is on the summits of Hawai’i Island.
Ke Ka’ina Hana (The Process)
Koa wood is peeled to a 1/200″ thick veneer and two pieces are fused together which produces what is called “micro-veneer.”
