All Hawaiian Koa products made by Thalia now come with our Hawaiian Koa Reforestation Commitment. $5 from the sale of each Capo or Phone Case goes directly towards planting and maintaining new Koa trees in Hawaii.
While all of the woods and shell on our site are sourced from ethical vendors who have sustainability policies in place, with Hawaiian Koa we are going a step further. For Hawaiian Koa we will directly source our wood in Hawaii, ensuring chain of custody of the salvaged logs. These logs will then be sliced into veneer per our specifications. Next, we will be actively involved in the planting and maintaining of new royal koa trees in Hawaii on the same islands where our wood originates.
Here is the new AAA Curly Hawaiian Koa in our new products.
The demand for our products radically surges during the Holiday Season and we simply cannot serve that demand surge under our normal build-to-order model. So we actively trim the available options in the run up to the holidays so we can focus on building our most popular products. So if you have seen products on our site that say Sold Out until 2021 that is what is going on.
Now that the Holiday Season is fully underway and we have passed the initial surge of Black Friday / Cyber Monday, we are turning many of these products back on for "preorder." This way anyone who is willing to wait until January to get these products may pre-order them now and secure their place in line.
