"Ho`ohie" in Hawai`ian means 'beautiful' and that is exactly what a finished work of polished koa should be. Our solid koa frames are made from individually, hand-selected koa. We literally mill, shape, craft, polish and finish each frame by hand. As a result, each frame is a work of art in itself. The time and energy involved in crafting each of our Ho`ohie frames is considerable. It is truly a labor of love. So it is understandable that these frames are only available in limited production through this website and where EVJ's pre-framed artwork are displayed.
This, however, does not mean that our frames are not affordable! We love our work and we want to continue it as long as we can. To keep doing what we love, we need to provide our customers with the best possible product at the best possible price. So contrary to what one might expect, you will find the prices for our frames are surprisingly lower than comparable or similar frames in the marketplace, today.
Please don't hesitate to email us with any questions you may have regarding our frames or anything else related to koa wood products.
