E huli na lima i lalo…

There is an ʻōlelo noʻeau that says, “Huli nā lima i luna, make. Huli nā lima i lalo, ola”  It means , if you turn your palms up, only asking for things, you will make (die or fail). But if you turn your palms down, as when you are working, you’ll live and succeed.  It is in that spirit that the shop has adopted the motto  “E huli nā lima i lalo,” meaning turn your hands down, to work, to create things, and you’ll find ola (life or success).
