Follow the various paths from sea to sky to soil to stream to tree to cloud to earth to caves. The cycles go on. We must engage with this system of ho'opō'aiapuni, to recycle: creating new from old. Creating use from waste.
-> Designed in Hawaiʻi
-> Responsibly Printed
-> Stitched by hand in North + South America
-> Bottoms feature a high-waist, high-thigh cut of the 80ʻs
These suits hold a fun + timeless beauty with their clean simple lines, high-thigh & high-waist cut reminiscent of the 80ʻs, and mix + match capabilities.
Each one of the Pō'aiapuni bikinis were made from REPREVE certified fabric which means;
→ Post consumer recycled materials including plastic bottles were used to create the material these suits are made from,
→ these materials were given a second life,
→ virgin oil resource consumption was avoided,
→ fewer greenhouse gasses were emitted,
→ and... water + energy were conserved in this process, which makes a BIG difference for our future.
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.
Wash & Care Instructions
-> As with all swimwear, be careful to avoid velcro or snags as it will pull some of the white fibers from beneath the design. Especially the darker colors.
->Polyester and Spandex are plastic and will melt overtime in hot water and heated dryers. Hand-wash cold for longevity. Dirt and grime wash out easily with soap and a soft bristled brush or by rubbing the suit together.
-> Hang dry in the shade.
-> Do not dry clean
Sizing runs a little big. 95% of women are one size smaller in these suits then they would expect. If you are unsure after looking over the sizing chart or prefer your swimwear a bit tighter then you will do better to order a smaller size.
The spandex textile allows them to be accommodating of sizing fluctuations. Still not sure? Send us a message in the chat bubble with your height and weight and we would love to make you a recommendation!
