Inspired both native Hawaiian and local Hawaii culture, our bamboo muslin kapa moe are one of the most popular items in our shop! In Hawaiian, Kapa Moe means blanket. These oversized swaddle blankets are designed to grow with your keiki and even be useful to an adult who might just fall in love with the design!
This extremely soft and light weight blanket makes an easy gift and is a must have item for a new baby! These blankets are perfect for all uses from swaddling, nursing cover ups, nap time blankets, beach towels, and imaginative play (think forts and capes).
Did you know that 2022 was proclaimed as the "Year of the Limu" in Hawaii? Limu was an integral part of the traditional Hawaiian diet, was used for medicinal, religious, and cultural purposes, and plays a significant role in our freshwater and saltwater habitats. Unfortunately, many invasive species have taken over and efforts to restore native limu populations are underway.
As part of our Kakoo Collection, a portion of the sales from this collection will be donated to the Waimanalo Limu Hui, a community based group who seek to replenish the once bountiful supply of limu found in Waimanalo Bay.
I asked Under the Moon Designs to help bring this collection to life by painting limu lipoa, limu kohu, limu pakeleawaaa, and limu manauea. We focused on some popular limu for eating.
Some fun facts:

- Tumble dry on low or line dry.
- Bamboo muslin is delicate and can snag easily. Do not wash with velcro or items with hooks that it can get caught on.
**Actual colors may vary. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor or phone has a different capability to display colors and that everyone sees these colors differently.**
