Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

IMG_0902

After a decade of saving money and being indecisive about style, this lauhala hat found me two years ago. I had fallen in love with it, even before the staff at Kimura Lauhala Shop in Holualoa mentioned that the hat was made by a master lauhala weaver, Aunty Josephine Kaukali Fergerstrom, who was named as a Living Treasure of Hawaiʻi in 2011. One of these days, that hat will be passed on to someone in my family and I hope the next owner will treasure it as much as I do.
