THE STORY BEHIND THE HAND-DRAWN DESIGN

This design features the beautiful coastal flowering plant called Dwarf Naupaka (Scaevola coriacea). Unlike its more common cousin, Coastal Naupaka (Scaevola taccada), Dwarf Naupaka is endangered and endemic to Hawai'i, meaning it is found nowhere else. 

There are many versions of how the naupaka came to be, one being the story of Nanau and Kapaka, two lovers that could not be together and were transformed into two half-flowers, one only found in the mountains, and the other only found by the sea.
