Beautiful designs and patterns of seasonal landscapes and nature
on Kimono clothes are widely recognized even outside of Japan.
Our “Samurai Aloha” shirts are made with Kimono fabrics from Tohoku.
We disentangle Kimono fabrics by hand and make a fabric roll,
which we use to make aloha shirts at our factory in Fukushima.
Tohoku is still in the middle of its reconstruction.
We saw the indomitable spirit of Samurai in people who survived through the disaster,
and came up with the name of “Samurai Aloha”.
We hope to dispatch new Japanese cultures from Tohoku.
“Aloha Shirts” are said to have come from “Kimono”.
It has been told that our Japanese ancestors began to make shirts out of their Kimono clothes to
adjust to a new environment when they moved to Hawaii around the beginning of the 19th century.
It did not take much time for aloha shirts to be spotted by the local people in Hawaii.
Patterns and designs of Kimono were used on a lot of aloha shirts,
and became a major influence on the history of aloha shirts.
Today, “aloha shirts” are beloved by people around the globe and widely known for having many collectors.
