Originating from the Hawaiian word for "strike" or "hit", Kahala's Striking Tapa print infuses inspiration from the traditional Polynesian tapa cloth made by beating mulberry tree bark into paper thin fabric. Tapa is also characterized by its repetitive geometric patterns, which were often motifs representing the sea, the mountains, marine and animal life.
Kahala's cotton broadcloth is a durable woven fabric. By having the reverse side of the fabric facing out, the prints' motifs and colors are softened. Special care is taken when printing to ensure quality and uniformity.
Kahala has been producing Hawaiian based apparel since 1936 and are crafted from exclusive textile designs, with meticulous attention to fit, detailing, fabrication and make.
