The Duke’s Pareo Kahala Aloha Shirt print originally came from Tahiti in the 1950’s. The print heavily influenced the Hawaiian garment industry, so much so that Duke Kahanamoku and his surf team were known to always wear the print (hence how it got the name).
This print’s flower is significantly unique. Each petal is actually a clam shell arranged in the pattern of a flower. Shells, flowers, and pineapples all tie in together to create a classic South Pacific textile design.
All of our shirts have their own stories. We hand-cut, stitch, and sew repurposed vintage aloha shirts and bring them back to life. As a result of this, all of our shirts are unique and can be deemed one-of-one pieces.
