Presenting Leho/ Hina'i of the Kealopiko x Wrappily 2018 Collection, two sheets packed with serious ALOHA vibes. Kealopiko is loved in the islands for weaving the authentic stories of Hawaiian culture into their textiles. Here's four of their signature patterns reworked in color ways perfect for summertime—or anytime—gift wrapping.
If these patterns lure you in, there's good reason. Hawaiʻi boasts 35 species of leho (cowry), nine of which are endemic. It's debatable which part of the shell is more attractive, the plump, rounded decorative top or the toothed slit on the bottom. One common use of leho shells was part of an intricate lure for the clever octopus. Another Hawaiian popular fishing method was the use of woven baskets to trap fish, called hina'i. Often woven by women, they came in various shapes and sizes and were designed to catch a variety of different fish.
Wrappily's reversible gift wrap sheets come flat and folded with complementary gift tag stickers. Sheet size is 21.5" x 34". Printed in Washington State on recycled and recyclable premium-grade newsprint.
