Samurai ALOHA is based in Sendai city that plays a role in revitalizing and renewing the hope and harmony of Tohoku. We will deliver the culture and heart that has been nurtured in Japan, Hawaii, and Tohoku since ancient times, along with vivid shirts.
"The only Aloha shirt in the world made by the people in Tohoku."
It is said that approximately 200 million kimonos in Japan are being stored without being worn, due to our current lifestyle changes.
With the help of mothers in Miyagi Prefecture, we sort out and separate these kimonos and take each one apart, carefully washing and cutting them one by one. After that, we take the fabrics from the kimonos and make them into Aloha shirts at sewing factories in Fukushima and Iwate.
We named these shirts "Samurai Aloha" after the unbreakable spirit of the samurai. This also represents the unbreakable spirit of Tohoku and its people, who overcame The Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.
Originally, Aloha shirts come from the Japanese kimono.
It is said that the beginning of the Aloha shirt is between the end of 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. Japanese immigrants who migrated to Hawaii remade their kimonos into open-collared shirts.
These Aloha shirts, which were born from the Japanese kimono, have been revitalized and reinvented in Tohoku.
They are our "Samurai Aloha".
All of our Aloha shirts are one-of-a-kind.
Please find the "Samurai Aloha" that uniquely fits you.
