NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN

The Fishing for the Men design originates from a playful ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian proverb).

“Aia i ka huki ulua.”

“Gone to haul ulua fish.” 

The story behind the proverb relates the ulua (trevally) to a handsome man. The proverb says you have, “gone to haul ulua fish” and implies that you have “gone to get a man.” Wear this shirt to subtly let the room know that you (the wearer) are interested in the men.

The ulua fish is a highly prized reef fish for shore fishermen due to its intelligence, power and fighting spirit. The fish is also a delicious and popular fish to eat.

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!
