Slouchy Cross Body • Hau • Paloma Blush
The Hau is representative of the ephemeral transitions of life! Hau flowers start out bright and vibrant and yellow, transform into a delicate coral pink-orange and then take your breath away when you see them next and unexpectedly they have morphed into a deep beautiful brownish red. I turned 40 last year (in September of 2020) and I became keenly aware that like the Hau flower, I had moved into and begun the next stage of my life. This print is a celebration of that step…moving forward and welcoming the excitement of what’s next with boldness and fearlessness. That’s Hau you do it!

All Jana Lam Handmade in Hawaii textiles are silk-screened by hand on cotton fabrics with water-based inks. This piece is made from a 100% cotton twill fabric with a soft finish, and is reinforced with fleece interfacing to give the fabric some shape with a soft feel.
The #janalamfam recommends spot cleaning when smaller spots show up. We usually use Shout Wipes for that, but Jana has used tide pens in the past. Make sure if there is a white top print to be a little more gentle on rubbing spots out. Since the ink sits on top of the fabric a bit more than other colors, there is a chance of the ink rubbing off and getting on other parts of the fabric.
But, you can put your Jana Lam's in the wash. We usually use a hand wash cycle and lay flat to dry. After it's dried, it is always good to give it a little bit of an iron. We use 100% cotton fabric, so it may shrink in the dryer, but will definitely stand up to ironing.
