The Hawaiian term for barkcloth is kapa. Traditionally, kapa was made from the wauke tree, stripped of its outer bark and soaked in fresh water to soften the fibers. The softened material was then pounded twice into a flat piece of fabric. Kapa became a symbol of rank and prestige in ancient Hawaiian culture, used most often by royalty and offered as gifts.
Today, barkcloth is made from 100% cotton, textured with a surface that is reminiscent of cushion covers from the early 1950’s.
