This Pullover Aloha Shirt features our Holo Mai Pele print on Avocado fabric with
The Hawaiians decorated their kapa with designs imprinted with bamboo sticks that they carved and inscribed by hand. They carved motifs on the insides of the bamboo and made their prints on bark cloth, using dyes they made from the plants they found in nature. This design tells the story of the Travels of Pele and how she came across the great oceans in a canoe. With her family she sought a new home, considering each island until settling at Halema'uma'u on the Island of Hawai'i. The geometric motifs represent the natural elements, the mode of transportation, and the 'aumakua, the ancestral guardians of the family.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttondown is an open front, tapered shirt with a full length placket, while The Pullover features a half placket and is designed slightly wider to allow over-the-head dressing with ease. Coconut buttons are featured on the stand-up, button-down collar and on the front placket. Tuck it in or leave it out over the trousers for a more casual look. Either way, it's the perfect touch of crisp aloha!
