When Teal founded CocoKealohi her dream was to perpetuate the art of Ulana Lau Niu (coconut frond weaving), an old native Hawaiian practice. Although the coconut tree is not actually native to Hawai'i since it was brought to the islands by polynesian voyagers, the Hawaiian people utilized every part the coconut tree. Specifically the fronds were used and woven into many different useful items, such as, hats, bags, mats, bowls, panels for roofing, & more!
Our mission is to bring back the art of Ulana Lau Niu by creating useful products for you to utlize in your every day life. Our main product is the Pāpale Lau Niu & we love modernizing it with our own unique touches.
