Kalo (taro) is a staple plant native to Hawaiʻi. Kalo (taro) is the foundation plant of Kākou Collective. It is the representation of our ancestors and our tie to this ʻāīna (land). When planting the kalo, we use the huli of the kalo generation before to plant and create the next generation of kalo. Our take on this action of planting and replanting is to incorporate kalo into the initial release of every new collection that we create. It remains our foundation in our culture, and our ties to our roots and ancestors.
