Manaola Hawai‘i

Designer: Manaola Yap
Show: Live Aloha

Inspired by his cultural upbringing, self-taught designer Manaola Yap translates Hawaiian spirituality and Island beauty into prints that embody patterns found in nature. Utilizing a traditional Hawaiian stamping method known as the ‘ohekāpala, Yap handcarves designs onto bamboo laths, which are stamped and digitized into bold Hawaiian prints.
