This design brings back my inaugural designs from 3 years ago. This particular design is called 'Ohi'ohi and it shares the story how my business started and what took me down this path I walk today. When I started my company, it was with bamboo stamped t-shirts and kīhei. But before I actually started, I always said I will go into the forest, harvest the bamboo, carve the stamps and start printing shirts. But for a long time, that was just talk. I never actually went and harvested, so one day I drew this design and when I seen it finished, I felt God was telling me I was talking way too much and I needed to follow up with action. So once I realized that, the next day I went hiking in the mountains, harvested the bamboo I needed, carved my first set of designs, and begun Na'au Wala'au Designs. The main point of the story is that actions speak louder than words. So just get up and do it! First MAMo Fashion Show in the books!
Mahalo Ke Akua!
