Hawaiian shirt collar
The Hawaiian or Aloha shirt is easily recognizable by its low-cut collar, short sleeves and floral patterns.
The origins of the Hawaiian shirt are believed to date back to the late nineteenth century when Japanese migrants arrived in Hawaii to serve as laborers in the sugar cane fields. They brought with them the traditional tapa fabric. They work shirtless in the fields, which shocked the Christian missionaries who forced them to wear a cotton shirt with mother-of-pearl or coconut buttons, a "palaka," to which local flowers are added as well as decorations usually found on kimonos.
Tencel, or lyocell, is a fiber produced from wood cellulose, taken from the bark of trees. From an aesthetic point of view, it is often used as an alternative to silk, for its soft touch and elasticity. A resistant material, it absorbs a lot of water and therefore allows the garment to dry quickly and regulates perspiration.
On an ecological level, its manufacture requires very little water. As for the trees used, they are mainly deciduous trees, such as eucalyptus, which have a strong regenerative capacity.
