MO‘OLELO

Around the 1920’s in Hawai‘i the blue and white checkered denim Palaka became the standard material of working shirts. The name Palaka is a transliteration into Hawaiian of the English word frock for the loose fitting shirt worn by British and American sailors to Hawai‘i. Soon Palaka came to mean the dark blue and white woven fabric the shirts were made of heavy cotton. Eventually these Palaka shirts and blue denim trousers called sailor-mokus became a traditional Hawaiian wear both on and off the plantations.

Aloha is a state of being, a way of knowing, a lens in which we see the world.
