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.
We have some exciting new products planned for the future! In this short video, I share several of these new products including Thalia straps, strap locks, wall hangers and more!
I have been thinking about strap locks for years and began development on a new strap lock about three years ago. The problem that I have with existing strap locks is that they usually require you to replace the button on your guitar (and risk stripping out the screw hole? yes, I've done it...) and of course none of the solutions on the market are very elegant or attractive.
