One (pronounced oh•neigh/eng. sand) has a mysterious and universal effect on us, humans. We draw lines in it and upon it. We build castles in it and kingdoms upon it. Sand carves lines through our conscious, it calls out to us with stories of connection and of our creation. As a global species, Sand lies deep in our cultural conscious and today it is one of the most important solid substances on earth.
Our new colorway of Noe ʻUla is dedicated to our namesake. It is designed to uplift and give a voice, however small it may be for now, to that which is both minuscule and infinite, a means of measurement and a substance beyond measuring, a hero of sorts and a natural resource that we, unknowingly, cannot live without - NĀ ONEKEA, or white sands.
Onekea is a rendition of Noe 'Ula, or pink mist, which was first inspired by the colors of dawn witnessed while holding my son's hand on an empty beach beside a malie sea. In that first light we sat, walked, dipped our toes in the ocean and observed lifeʻs never-ending yearning to grow, change, blend, multiply, and to give back.
Noe 'Ula represents lifeʻs abundance experienced through connection and simplicity.
This artwork is a collection of single line drawings, where the entire image is created using one, unbroken line. This technique is referred to as line art. For artists it can be a way to simplify the complex world around us.
'Ulu was chosen as the manifestation of this experience as 'Ulu is more than just a source of food. Translated it means “to grow, build, and/or inspire.” It is also the embodiment of ancient ancestors, deities and gods whom, like each human and each grain of sand, it has descended from those who came before… Forever connected.
*These are made from the same buttery smooth material of our loved bodysuits. As with any bathing suit please avoid velcro or snagging as it will slightly alter the appearance of the design. If this does happen do not toss as it is still very high quality lole ʻauʻau.
