This basic, plaid woven pattern is known in Hawai'i as PALAKA, a fabric that has been a quintessential part of Hawai'i life throughout the past century. It has been worn and loved by plantation workers, paniolo (cowboys), local boys, surfers, musicians, hula dancers, and keiki. Our favorite, classic colors have been paired with refreshing florals for the next generation.
100% cotton - soft, durable, and easier on the environment.
