This Long Sleeve Buttonup Aloha Shirt features our Kalaukoa print on Bone fabric with Cobblestone ink.
The koa tree is the giant of the forest, a symbol of strength. Its wood, highly esteemed for its distinct grain and color, is placed on hula altars. The name of this design recognizes the Hawaiian tradition of passing family names from generation to generation. In this case, the family is from North Kohala on the Big Island of Hawai'i, and this name has been in use for several generations. There is a Hawaiian saying: "If you want to plan for one year, plant kalo (taro). If you want to plan for 10 years, plant koa. If you want to plan for 100 years, teach the children."
Set yourself apart from the others by donning a long sleeve shirt. This two-chest-pocket shirt could be a style statement for any occasion. Graduation? Lūʻau? Court appearance? Of just to be a little stylish…
Laʻaukulua is the nineteenth day of the Hawaiian moon month, a few days after the full moons. It’s a good day to till the dirt and plant bananas. Fishing is not too productive because of the unpredictable storms. We named this style after this night of moon as we completed the design process on that day.
