This summer there was a large commotion around Oahu about the honu (Sea turtles)! For the first time, a mass of turtles took a break right on Hawaii's most populated beach, North Shore. Why? Who knows. But it was an amazing sight to see. Locals and tourists alike always celebrated over finding that rare turtle sighting in the water where they poke their heads up for air. These turtles are still on the endangered species list. It's exciting to see! This summer, instead of the regular pokes for air, these turtles took a lunge into the air! They didn't fly, on the contrary they were grounded. Yes. These sea turtles decided to be land turtles for a week! I was even able to get close to them and take a picture! Legal or not I'm pretty happy. Hopefully this isn't a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If you're ever in Hawaii during summer,
All of our shirts come with coconut buttons. Why is that?
Hawaii's pride is in its abundance of nature; the trees, the rocks, the sand, all contribute to the beauty of Hawaii. Many button down shirts use plastic buttons, but this is not Hawaii. Our shirts are made to represent Hawaii; to spread the spirit of Aloha: love and togetherness (and yes, it also means "Hello/Goodbye"). Hawaii, like all the other states, consider littering a crime. We think it is a crime to also litter our shirts with these clear plastic buttons because the Hawaiian shirts represent our State. Instead, we use coconut buttons to give the shirt design, uniqueness, and culture. Most importantly, it gives the shirt a voice to say "This is Hawaii."
