The Kahala 006 Vintage Hawaiian Shirt

A vertical border of reef fish, from colorful moorish idols to the famous humuhumunukunukuapua‘a (reef triggerfish) are carefully balanced and laid out over a white fishing net on this yellow short-sleeved aloha shirt by The Kahala.

Cutting a border print required extra care on the cutting table, to ensure that each panel, in each size would have equal and balanced placement in the design.  This required all the pieces of the pattern to be individually placed on the goods to make the proper marker for each cutting.  This took more time and required greater fabric usage.
