The Hawaiian or Aloha shirt is easily recognisable by its low-cut collar, short sleeves and floral motifs.
The origins of the Hawaiian shirt are said to date back to the end of the nineteenth century when Japanese migrants arrived in Hawaii to serve as labourers in the sugar cane fields. They brought with them the traditional tapa fabric. They work shirtless in the fields, which shocks Christian missionaries, who require 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.
Lyocell, or tencel, is a fibre 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.
From an ecological point of view, 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.
