An Ode to the Past

Marie OwensComment

Last year, we were introduced to a new line of Hawaiian-bred tee shirts under the Salvage Public label. Crafted by Joe Serrao, and designed and produced right here in Honolulu, Salvage Public pays homage to the glory days of surf culture in Hawaii. Composed of the softest, USA-grown organic cotton and adorned with iconic images of the late Duke Kahanamoku, old Hawaiian surfboards like the Alaia, and retro fins just to name a few, Joe has the unique gift of finding the quintessential designs that capture surf culture in Hawaii. Needless to say, we were impressed and scooped up a few for the showroom floor. 

Sine we first began carrying the line, our Salvage Public tees have become one of the most popular items in our store. The designs on the tee are iconic, and the fit is perfect. But more than that, we're thrilled to be supporting a young designer who's doing it all by hand, in his own warehouse space, just down the road. 

If you're interested in ordering, you can send an email to aloha@owensandcompany requesting sizes. (They go quick, so we may not always have the full range in stock.)
