Cassidy 2-way Convertible Shirt, "Palaka" Plaid

Cassidy 2-way Convertible Shirt, "Palaka" Plaid



The Cassidy shirt in heather grey, blue, and white brushed certified organic flannel cotton "Palaka" plaid is perfect as a shirt for cool nights or layered as a shirt jacket, with adjustable sleeves (long sleeves or short sleeves), for whatever weather or situation you may be in.

In Hawaii there is a traditional patterned textile called "Palaka" plaid. Historically, it was a thick cloth from England, with the pattern created in two colors (usually white and a color), which made its way to Hawaii to make shirt uniforms for the field and plantation workers. Like the ubiquitous denim textile that was also used for workers in mainland America, the "Palaka" plaid became mainstream in the Hawaiian culture and is used widely today from shirts to dresses to home decor.

We honor this cultural treasure and translate it into sustainable fashion by introducing a third color to modernize the pattern, as a yarn-dye with a heather grey, blue, and white.
