Palapala Designs is going to Hilo! The Merrie Monarch Hula Festival will be on the Big island April 3-6 and will be celebrating their 50th anniversary. This should be an exciting event with the hula elite coming together to compete or to just be a part of the scene.
I am honored to be asked once again to participate in the Merrie Monarch Invitational Hawaiian Arts Fair which is part of this celebration. For this special occasion, I have designed the Kanalima (50) Tote. It has my original blockprint art of Maile encircling an ipu. The tote is in the shape of an ipu heke and comes in brown or cream. There are fifty totes for fifty years!
