FITTED firmly believes in Hawaiian culture. We thrive on it, and most
importantly respect it. Just the same as the Ali'i (Hawaiian Chiefs)
who once ruled the Islands, we not only take pride in what we do and
who we represent, but we also live with pono, or respect and
righteousness. Draped in red and gold feathers which were derived from
various indigenous species of birds, the Ali'i wore these colors of
royalty with pride and utmost respect. The colors, along with yellow
represent the mana (power) in which each Ali'i possessed, and in which
the people revered yet also admired at the same time. The color brown
also very well represents many aspects of Hawaii. Sandalwood was used
by farmers to cultivate their crops, and Koa trees were carved into
Wa'a (canoes) which brought us to these islands. Various weapons were
also carved from Koa that our Warriors used that ultimately led us to
prosperity and subduing triumph.
Tuesday (5/13) we have another drop you won’t wanna miss: another brand new t-shirt design along with a brand new sticker pack sheet, all utilizing the same color schemes mentioned above. The t-shirt is dubbed “Makaukau” which roughly translates to “skilled” as in skilled Ali’i. The graphic is of a Hawaiian warrior draped in a traditional yellow cape and wearing a mahiole (a helmet made out of feathers) & carrying Kahili (which represents royalty). Too ill.
Our FITTED Royalty sticker pack, utilizing the same aforementioned colors. This
particular sticker pack contains past graphics we’ve run on some of our older
t-shirt designs as well as some newer graphic designs specifically for this sticker pack which produces a very authentic Hawaiian vibe. You have our “Fish & Poi,” “Old English ‘H’”, “Aloha Served Daily,” as well “Aloha Means Hello & Goodbye.” These sticker sheets are strictly limited to 100 pieces – so get in early to get yours!
