New A'ama Leggings From Feather Love Hawaii

New A'ama Leggings From Feather Love Hawaii

My best friend Jenna Kagawa is back with a new line of Hawaii-inspired leggings. And They. Are. Amazing! 

Her new line features little Hawaiian "A'ama" crabs.  

Hawaiian a'ama crab


This is a crab called the ‘A’ama crab.  

Its Scientific name is Grapsus Tenuicrustatus.  And its English name is the Rock Crab.  Its habitat is shallow areas, reefs, and rocks.  They are found in the splashing zone on Hawaii's coastal areas.  The ‘A’ama Crab is Polynesian introduced and it has a hard black shell usually decorated with yellow specks.  The ‘A’ama Crab is a very common crab to find at the beach.

Growing up here in Hawaii, as a kid, you are sometimes a little bit afraid of an A'ama Crab. Everybody gets excited when they see them running across the rocks.  And even if you're afraid of the little skittering, live A'ama, you usually have enough guts to pick up their dried out shell, which turns a bright color red in the sun.

These little Black A'ama Crabs were the inspiration behind these leggings. Jenna has, "always loved wearing leggings and realized that there was nowhere she could get Hawaii inspired kind". One day she thought, "maybe I should just start making them". And then she did! I couldn't be more stoked!

Jenna and I have been Best Friends since 5th grade and it's so exciting to see her being creative and making cool stuff again. She took a few years off from her Jewelry Line (Feather Love Designs) to raise her [adorable] twins. Now her and her sister-in-law are back together creating these super unique, designed in Kailua-Kona Hawaii.

The A'ama Style is the second style in their line of leggings. The first design features Sunrise Shells on a turquoise or light pink background.

Both leggings are perfect for so many things: Camping, Swimming, Fishing, Cruising, Sleeping, Yoga, Running, even just walking the dog. You can also wear them on jungle hikes, or even out to pick some bananas. These tights complement flowers pretty well too!
