Welo KEIKI ʻAʻalahonua Button Up Aloha Shirt - Cornflower
This Keiki ʻAʻalahonua Button Up Aloha Shirt features our Welo print on Cornflower fabric with White and Cloud inks.
The second design I ever cut was inspired by a Chinese container. Two koi facing each other became one of our iconic images in the early days. The design was featured on the yellow awning at the first Sig Zane Designs store on Kilauea Avenue. My inspiration in 1983 came from paper hand cuts from China. I drew several koi with black ink (I was too intimidated to hand-cut all of the scales at the time!) The koi were printed on pareu and also on the Chinese tees that we offered at craft fairs. In celebration of Boy's Day, I wanted to bring back these koi, this time hand-cutting the stencil. I selected three of the original nine fish to represent the three generations of Zanes: my father, myself and my son, Kūhaʻo. The name Welo means progeny. The term also means to flutter as in the wind, and especially on Boy's Day we enjoy seeing the Koi Nobori in the breeze, anchored by tall bamboo, representing all the boys in the family.
