Blending Fashion & Culture
Captivating & traditional at once, our Hawaiian pa'u hula skirts feature bold, colorful & floral prints inspired by the beauty of Hawaii & the story-telling dance of hula. Our pa'u skirts are designed & made in Hawaii.
Each hula skirt is hand cut and sewn with three rows of elastic into an adjustable waistband. Single pa'u skirts are sewn with about three yards of fabric. The Double pa'u hula skirts are sewn with about six and a half yards of cotton blend fabric.
A Hula Skirt Or A Pa'U?
The pa'u skirt is the quintessential garment for the hula dancer. You will see this gathered at the waist, calf-length skirt worn as the costume in nearly every traditional hula number in the kahiko ...ancient style of hula. The skirt may be of unadorned solid color poly-cotton, it may be a calico print or it may have a hand printed border at the hem of the skirt. There are many variations on the basic theme. Some pa'u skirts have a single casing at the waist. This is for the cording which runs through it to tie the garment to the waist of the dancer. Others have several rows of casing so that several cords are inserted and tied one-by-one at the waist. Some pa'u skirts use elastic rather than cording. There may be one row of elastic or there may be 5 or more rows of elastic at the waist.
Hula - A Language of Motion
The hands of the hula dancer are ever going out in gesture, her body swaying and pivoting itself in attitudes of expression. Her whole physique is a living and moving picture of feeling, sentiment and passion. The art of gesture was one of the most important branches taught by the hula master. Not only are there mimetic and imitative gestures; but also symbolic gestures that can be catalogued almost definitely into a language of motion. —Nathaniel B. Emerson’s “Unwritten Literature of Hawaii.”
