Story behind the design
"When I first started working in avian conservation on Kauaʻi in 2016, I would spend my down time thumbing through H. Douglas Pratt's iconic book The Hawaiian Honeycreepers (Oxford University Press, 2005). I was endlessly amazed by the beauty and diversity of all these birds that once thrived throughout Hawaiʻi but had virtually disappeared today. H. Douglas Pratt's paintings brilliantly depicted the extinct honeycreeper species in such a way that made it easier to imagine them fluttering across the forest canopy, feeding on the native plants that they developed symbiotic relationships with. These paintings have had such a marked impact on my life, so in 2022 I decided to reach out to H. Douglas Pratt with hopes of finding ways to inspire others with his unmatched artwork. This was monumental, as H. Douglas Pratt has been making positive impacts on Hawaiian honeycreeper conservation for nearly 50 years. He was one of the last people to see a handful of extinct Hawaiian birds, like the ʻōʻū and Kauaʻi ʻōʻō. His story galvanizes the push to protect the Hawaiian honeycreepers that are still holding on today."

I got 2 outfits for my boys to wear for their preschool graduation. They got a ton of compliments on the beautiful print. The material is so soft and light weight. It's also a dark color for masking stains and spills which is a win when dressing toddlers!
