The art of making clothing and material goods from the bark of trees
has been practiced around the world. Hawaiʻi and the Pacific used the
plants such as wauke (paper mulberry) to make kapa (bark cloth). Learn
the history and future of kapa in Hawaiʻi with Dalani Tanahy of Kapa
Hawaii, LLC, and spend some time using traditional Hawaiian tools and
methods to create a piece of kapa yourself.

HawaiiTourism through the Kūkulu Ola Program.
