The gourd, otherwise described as ipu, contains a holistic role within Hawaiian history and culture. Physically, the ipu can be used to carry food and water or store personal items. It can also be used to produce kani (sound) for mele (song) and hula (dance).

Spiritually, the ipu has been used as a significant metaphor in procreation stories.


*Itazime is an old Japanese method of creating patterns in dyeing, somewhat similar to tie-dye. But instead of using string or thread to compress the fabric in places to prevent the dye liquor from penetrating, solid objects called resists are clamped onto it. The fabric is first folded repeatedly, resulting in bold geometric patterns.
