Fabric dyed in Bali crossed the sea, traveled from island to island, and made into Aloha Shirts in Hawaii.
~ Island Batik ~Island Batik produces fabrics in a dyeing factory centered on a small village in Bali.
Men and women in the community are involved in all production processes, not just factory management. Men drew designs on cloth with wax and dyed them. After that, the washed fabric is laid on rice fields and exposed to sunlight to dry. Sunlight is an essential factor in ensuring vibrant colors and robustness. Women also control the quality of the fabric, carefully fold the finished fabric, wrap it around a cardboard board, and pack it. Boards for wrapping fabrics are also made by families in the surrounding area and are made using 100% recyclable materials.
~ HARRISS by LANI'S General Store ~
Fabrics dyed in Bali crossed the sea, traveled from island to island, and made into shirts at Lanise General Store, which has an atelier in Honolulu Hawaii.
The open-collared Aloha shirt, developed in collaboration with HARRISS and LANI'S General Store, uses only a single-needle machine without using any serger machines. The side and armholes are finished with a fold-over stitch that look beautiful and make them very durable. We have used a 2mm thick two-hole shell buttons that are elegant and easy to open and close.
In addition, on the back of the lower placket, there is a "name tag" with an hula angel girl, which is an icon of LANI'S General Store.
