Koa Wood - Durable and Beautiful
Koa has always been highly prized for durability and beauty. In old Hawaii, koa was one of the only trees large enough to make the big ocean sailing canoes. Before a tree was cut down, a kapuna or wise elder would bless the tree to appease the spirit of the tree and help ensure safe ocean voyages. Some call koa the king’s wood, but in old Hawaii it was not valued as high as other wood. Once its beauty was discovered by outsiders, its value grew and continue to grow as it became more and more rare.
