Vintage Hawaiian Shirt 80s Malahini Shell Stamp Print Tapa Cloth in Neutral Tans Size large

This shirt is by Malahini Hawaii circa the early 1980s. The fabric print is an interpretation of Hawaiian tapa cloth, stamp printed with shell motifs. The fabric is a soft tight weave cotton lawn in muted shades of warm and cool browns, tan and white. This Polynesian shirt has pua shell buttons, vertical button holes, a hook and loop closure at the collar and a chest welt pocket.

This shirt is in excellent condition with light overall wear. I have laundered and hung to dry so it is fresh and ready for wear.

Julia made this whole purchase wonderful. For a start, it was a great shirt at a fine price - but from the moment I paid, her communication was lovely, and she kept me up to date on the international shipping. Even chatted with me about the original designer. And then, when the package arrived (quickly), it was lovingly packed and gift-wrapped, with a tag and personal message, saying she hoped I enjoyed wearing the shirt. So, all in all, a wonderful lady, offering a fab service, and delivering it all with style. Highly recommended to everybody!

I got this in the mail the same day that my daughter-in-law came by. We both went into a swoon, but alas, it's too big for the girls right now. That's okay. Children do grow too fast for us.
