    Aku Tank Top

    The Aku is perhaps the most delicious eating fish. Hawaiians ate the whole fish, from the head to the tail, eating it raw, dried, or cooked in an imu. Aku is a stout fish two to two and a half feet long, deep blue with deeper blue stripes. One of the best known traditional stories is that of the coming to Hawaii of Paʻao, a chief of “Kahiki.” He quarreled with his brother, Lonopele, who, by supernatural powers, sent storms after Paʻao. But a school of aku appeared, “and rose to the surface with a roaring sound,” and by swimming about calmed the water. Lonopele brought on a second storm which threatened to swamp the canoes, and again a school of fish appeared in response to prayers of Paʻao, this time the ʻopelu fish and the waters were made smooth again, and so Paʻao and his company arrived in Hawaii. To honor these two fish they were made kapu to Paʻao and his company, as well as kapu to all Hawaiians for a few months each year. The kapu protected these fish from overfishing and from being killed during their spawning seasons insuring their survival. Our tank tops feature our original Aku design printed on the front and back of the shirt. They are 100% pre-shrunk jersey cotton knit and are available in size Medium thru 3XL. # AKTTN

    Kalo Tank Top

    The life of Kanaka Maoli is tied closely with kalo. Kalo is believed to have the greatest life force of all foods. According to the Kumulipo, the creation chant, kalo grew from the first-born son of Wakea (sky father) and Papa (earth mother), through Wakea's relationship with his daughter, Ho`ohokulani. Together they birthed a son named Haloanakalaukapalili, who was stillborn. He was buried and out of his body grew the kalo plant. They then had another son, healthy and strong, and he was also called Haloa, the namesake of his older brother. Haloa tended to his older brother, and the kalo grew abundantly. By Haloa's hand, the land became fertile. He was the first Hawaiian of whom all Hawaiian people are descended from.

    Kanaloa Tank Top

    The He'e or octopus is believed to be one of the kinolau of the Hawaiian god of the sea, Kanaloa. The He'e is probably the most intelligent of all invertabrates and have been shown to have the ability to learn from experience. They feed on crustaceans (shrimp, lobsters, crabs) and mollusks (primarily cowry snails). Their dens are often recognized by the pile of broken crab and snail shells found just outside the entrance. Early Hawaiians also relished he'e and captured them either by spearing or by using lures made of a large cowry shell lashed onto a hook called Lu He'e, attracting the he'e with the movements of the lure.

    Our tank tops feature our original Kanaloa design printed on the front and back of the shirt. They are 100% pre-shrunk jersey cotton knit and are available in size Medium thru 3XL. # KNTTR

    Laua'e Kāpala Tank Top

    The art of ‘ohe kāpala or bamboo stamping was the inspiration for this design.

The fragrant laua‘e fern was used in this contemporary approach to an ancient Hawaiian art form.

    Hāhālua Tank

    The Hāhālua or Manta Ray symbolizes freedom, power, and grace and it's a design Kainoa wanted to do for years. With the popularity of tattoos today, you see a lot of interpretations of this graceful creature but most of them Tahitian in origin and style. We wanted to do a Hawaiian interpretation. Using Na Makua elements such as our fish hook and sea pattern this is Kainoa's tribute to the Hāhālua.
