    ‘Ama’u Fern Teal Sleeveless Women's Aloha Shirt

    Size
    1 item left
    • This ‘Ama’u Fern Teal Sleeveless Women's Aloha Shirt from David Shepard Hawaii is available at Pop-Up Mākeke and features hand-drawn fabric print illustrations.

      'Ama'u is a pioneer species, one of the first plants to grow in the lava rock and cinder around the Kīlauea volcano. Nowhere are 'ama'u tree ferns found in more abundance than around Kīlauea at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. In fact, Halemaʻumaʻu, the name of the main volcanic crater, literally means the home of the 'ama'u.

      This sleeveless shirt has real coconut buttons and is made with draping 100% Rayon Viscose Twill fabric. Rayon viscose is a fiber that is intended as a silk substitute derived from wood pulp, making it a natural fabric that is more breathable than cotton. No plastic, polyester, or cotton is used on this shirt; instead, enjoy this all-natural wood pulp fiber with luxurious silk textured.

      This aloha shirt is the perfect addition to your wardrobe collection as it not only adds a pop of color but design as well! It would look great with any pair of jeans, work pants, leggings, or a skirt! With this shirt, you can create the perfect sophisticated out that will leave you feeling stylish and comfortable.

      Features:

      • Material: 100% Rayon Viscose Twill
      • Designed, Cut, and Sewn in Hawai'i on imported fabric.
    • Machine washable and dryer safe on a gentle setting.
    • Although found throughout the Hawaiian islands, nowhere are ‘ama‘u tree ferns found in more abundance than around Kīlauea at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. In fact, Halema‘uma‘u, the name of the main volcanic crater, literally means the home of the ‘ama‘u. The striking red color of the young leaves contrasts with the green-blue that they later become and echoes the nightly glow of the adjacent crater lava.

      This design highlights the delicate complexity of this tree fern growing on ever-changing lava; it highlights the lava’s creative and destructive power. Many Hawaiian legends tell the stories of Kamapua‘a, a mischievous pig demi-god who takes on many forms, including the kinolau (physical form) of the ‘ama‘u tree fern.

      He is best known for his tempestuous fiery relationship with the volcano goddess Pele. This design flirts with the story of their relationship.
