kapa kulture

This blog is dedicated to Hawaiian kapa and matters related to Hawai'i nei…kuku kapa e!


This website is a very important resource for the kapa community as it represents a historical legacy that contemporary kapa makers can easily embrace. Dalany Tanahy has been making kapa and sharing her knowledge for almost two decades.

    I am interested in finding out where I can buy some kapa strips, approx. 6″ wide and 6 feet long. A simple, traditional design, maybe just one color. Or something similar to the sample shown above on the website.
