Description


Hawaiian legend says that many centuries ago, the Menehune were a group of small people, or dwarfs, who lived hidden in the forests and valleys of the islands before the first settlers arrived from Polynesia. These Menehune roamed the deep forests at night, and were said to be about two feet tall, though some were as small as six inches They enjoyed dancing, singing and archery, and their favorite foods were bananas and fish. Much like Cupid, Menehune have been known to use magic arrows to pierce the heart of angry people, igniting feelings of love instead. According to local lore, they were smart, extremely strong and excellent craftsmen. They were rarely seen by human eyes, and they are credited with mighty feats of engineering and overnight construction. These industrious master builders used their great strength to build temples, fishponds, roads, canoes, and houses. One such structure they are believed to have built is Kikiaola, also known as the Menehune Ditch, a historic irrigation ditch that funnels water from the Waimea River on Kauai. Another one of their amazing feats is the legendary overnight creation of the Alekoko Fishpond on Kauai, which archaeologists estimate to be around 1,000 years old. This ’80s souvenir style design celebrates the craftsmanship of these diminutive people, showing a Menehune as he heads off to work as the sun sets on the Hawaiian Islands.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
