Handmade Coconut frond pāpale niu is now available! The pāpale (hat) is woven in a traditional Hawaiian Style and is made in a trendy and stylish open cut (top.) Wear it by itself or class it up with a lei po’o (flower crown or haku!) This beautiful hat is non-gender and fashionably worn by both male and females. Because it’s made with the leaves of coconut trees, this beautiful hat is an inexpensive alternate to the fancy lauhala. The green pāpale will start to patina (transition in color) within a few days and be completely tan within ten to twelve days.) Although water resistant (you can wear in the ocean,) store your pāpale in a dry place for longevity. This should last you many years to come! Please expect different variations on frond size, color. This is an all natural product and spotting is normal. These hats are hand-made with the intent to spread love and aloha!
A little designer tip: Hang on your wall or stack on a shelf for a beautiful tropical design and vibe. Give as a gift and keep one for yourself!
SIZING: In stock, we have the average size head circumference of 22-23 inches and small keiki (children) average of 17-18" (this is for children younger than 5 years old. Older children, please choose adult size hats.) Hats can also be custom made to your head size, but will need 30 days advance notice. When choosing a hat with a colorful lei po'o/haku, the haku will be made for longevity for shipping (refer to picture of other flower lei: colorful haku) and will not look like the haku above, unless specifies a "custom haku."
