Kahala x Nick Kuchar "Mauka" Aloha Shirt Collaboration
ALOHA SHIRT COLLABORATION
We had such a blast working on the the first Kahala shirt, the 'Makai,' that creating a second exclusive design collaboration was a no-brainer. Since we went makai (toward the sea) last time, we felt it was only right to go mauka (toward the mountains) for this one.
On the surface, Hawai‘i seems to be known for endless sand beaches, crystal clear water and reefs. However if you head mauka, you’ll find an ‘aina equally as rich. The Mauka shirt design features several elements synonymous to the islands, planting a taro patch, harvesting the ancient canoe plant banana, the indigenious lo‘ulu palm, the poi dog and Hawai’i’s boundless and beautiful waterfalls. Even in the capital of Honolulu, you can venture on to a hiking trail near the city and experience the beauty of our natural outdoors
