As the holiday season descends upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the joys and successes of the past year.
May the beauty and blessings of the season flourish, carry you through the coming year, and stay with you always.
ABOUT THE CARD
Cover Artwork: Textile design Maui Wreath, by Kahala Sportswear
Proteas, the uniquely beautiful and resilient flowers that bloom in a diverse array of shapes and colors and shown in the cover design, only grow in very specific and special climates. Kula, on the slopes of Haleakalā, is one of the few places in the world and in Hawai‘i where the non-native proteas thrive, and the flowers are often associated with the Valley Isle. Cades Schutte stands in solidarity with people across the globe who have joined together to assist the people and communities of Maui. We have contributed both donations and pro bono legal services to the Hawai‘i Community Foundation’s Maui Strong Fund, as well as volunteer assistance to those impacted by the fire. We will continue to support the rebuilding, healing, and remembrance of this tragedy. Maui nō ka ‘oi.
Kahala is a family-owned aloha shirt brand founded in Honolulu, Hawai‘i in 1936 and the first company in Honolulu to switch to factory manufacturing with the intent to export and wholesale aloha shirts. Kahala is the oldest operating apparel company in Hawai‘i and to this day most of its aloha shirts are still made in Hawai‘i. Kahala has designed an aloha shirt, the Lāhāina Lei, with 100% of net proceeds donated to the Maui Strong Fund (see kahala.com for details). Cades Schutte has been honored to support locally owned and operated brands such as Kahala in making their creative vision come to life.
