While the lauhala weave connects her to the timeless artistry of Hawaiian craftsmanship.

Surfergrl is drawn to the chocolate brown color of the Manoa Bag because it reflects the earthy tones of the natural surroundings. The warm and grounding essence of brown resonates with her connection to nature and simplicity, creating a sense of comfort and authenticity in her style. The color aligns with her love for the outdoors and complements the laid-back, yet sophisticated, lifestyle she embraces.

The Lauhala plant, also called the Pandanus tectorius, has long, spiky leaves. Artisans harvest and process these leaves to create intricate weavings. Lauhala bags, in particular, showcase the skill of traditional Hawaiian craftsmanship. The weaving technique imparts strength to the bags, making them both functional and beautiful.  Not just an accessory, designed in Hawai'i, this tote is a piece of Hawaiian tradition and artistry.
