Retro SACK BACK, Tiki dress at its "Surfs Up" finest, in vivid Earth tone brown & orange hues on creamy white natural Bark cloth, Depicted in natural and artificial light. Would make for a unique bohemian summer festival dress, or the perfect luau party dress.

Malihini was one of the long standing family owned apparel shops that had their start with Hawaiian Aloha shirts in the 40s, but lost their footing to the corporate mass production houses that inched many of the "Ma & Pop" shops out in the 80s, sadly closing in 94.

Barkcloth or bark cloth is a versatile material that was once common in Asia, Africa, Indonesia, & the Pacific, made by beating sodden strips of fibrous inner tree bark into sheets of fabric.
