The fun-loving Pataloha™ collection takes its inspiration from Hawaiian tradition while reflecting their own diverse, world-traveling experiences. Offered in a range of lively prints, the endlessly adaptable Pataloha™ Pareo can be worn as a dress, skirt, throw or sarong, made of lightweight 100% organic cotton.
The original pareos were made of sheets of lightweight cotton that were shipped to the South Seas. Coveted as trade items and often adorned with bold floral motifs, they became an everyday garment in the sunny and spirited Polynesian isles. Light enough for the hottest weather but secure enough for speedy scooter rides to the market, their contemporary Pataloha™ Pareo can be worn for either beach or town, made from airy, 2.2-oz 100% organic cotton, it’s easily tied as a skirt, dress or sarong in countless variations and is offered in a range of lively Pataloha prints.
