Our 'Akahi Drapery panels are a must-have window treatment that fit any room style. Inspired by geometry and tribal design motifs, Designer Jalene Kanani honors the Hawaiian tradition of kapa making, and the importance it played in storytelling and expression.
ʻAkahi was inspired by the Hawaiian barkcloth tradition of handmade kapa which is adorned with patterns created by ʻohe kāpala (bamboo stamps). The initial markings of this foundational print were graphically reinterpreted to evoke the essence of traditional kapa designs. It's name speaks to the primal connection between first nations' cultures and the design aesthetics they share.
