Honi Hala’s Story

Pulama Long

Creator of Honi Hala

Honi Hala started in September of 2017 after posting some woven bracelet pictures on Instagram. More people saw I was weaving hoops and messaged me if they could buy. For eight months I was driving all around O'ahu meeting people at their work, before dropping their kids off to schools, and random shopping centers to give them my woven hoops. June of 2018 I opened my online store and have been growing ever since.
Honi Hala has evolved into a community of those who not only want to wear woven products but are also interested in learning how to ulana lauhala (subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of our website). I am honored to share this knowledge and contribute to the perpetuation of 'ike kupuna.
