NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN

The Fishing for the People design originates from a playful ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian proverb) put together by the team at Maoli. 

“Aia i ka huki uhu.”

“Gone to haul uhu fish.” 

The story behind the proverb relates the uhu (parrotfish) to a gorgeous person. The proverb says you have, “gone to haul uhu fish” and implies that you have “gone to get a person.”  Wear this shirt to subtly let the room know that you (the wearer) are interested in all people.

The uhu fish is not only a very popular reef fish to eat, but also has some very interesting biology. The uhu has a rather unique ability to change its sex over its lifetime.

Sustainability

We've partnered with some stellar organizations who are taking garment printing into the 21st century with DTG (direct-to-garment) printing technology. This means, everything at Maoli is made to order and we don’t have a warehouse full of clothes lying around. This reduces the clothing waste in our business to nearly zero. 

Our eco-friendly water-based inks provide unlimited color combinations and make detailed prints pop without reducing their vibrancy in the wash. Reducing toxicity in the environment is one of our top priorities. 

Whenever possible, we also use organic, recycled, or sustainable fabrics to manufacture our apparel. We aim to make our products good for your body and for the ʻāina (land).

We encourage our customers and our community to demand more from us when it comes to sustainability. Have an idea? Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
