KAHALA OPENS NEW STORE IN WHALER’S VILLAGE
Kahala, one of Hawaii’s oldest garment brands — celebrating 75 years this year — is spreading their love to Maui. Now you can find and wear the work of local Maui Artist (and former Surfer Magazine founder) John Severson in Kaanapali’s Whaler’s Village. Severson was on hand at their grand opening to sign posters.
Kahala has been based Honolulu since 1936 and continues to keep their design and manufacturing in Hawaii. General Manager Cheryl Alves says, “Inspirations from flora and fauna can be seen in their island style shirts, that also depict scenes from Hawaii’s rich water sport history like surfing, paddling and fishing.”
You will find both old prints and new prints in their design line, which is for men and boys. In fact, Hawaii surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku’s favorite designs are still available on the hanger.
This is their second store in the state.
