Hayes states that Vintage Hawaiian Shirts can sell for over five thousand dollars and some have sold for well over $10,000. With that type of investment collectors are anxious to protect and display these gorgeous pieces of Hawaii history. We are excited about the opportunity that comes with preserving Hawaiian textile history while enabling our clients to showcase some of the most collectible shirts in the world, said Hayes.
According to Hayes, almost any style of Hawaiian shirt can be framed, however back panel designs are a favorite. A back panel shirt features a non-repeating pattern, perfect for an artistic focal point. Art Vogue is famous for back panel designs featuring sailing canoes, net fishermen and other tropical subject matter, said Hayes. Once a back panel shirt has been chosen for framing, the transformation into a true piece of art begins.
Hayes says that each vintage garment is professionally cleaned and mounted on a special acid free backing board by a textile conservator. Then a custom UV protected plexiglass frame is created and attached to the backing board. Finally, the finished shirt is crated and can be shipped anywhere in the world. The end result is a stunning piece of Hawaiian textile art, a conversation piece for years to come.
The Hana Shirt Company is a leading on-line retailer of Vintage Hawaiian Shirts specializing in men's shirts and women's aloha dresses, tops and skirts. Robert and Jennifer Hayes have been collecting men's vintage Aloha shirts for over 35 years and are thought to own the world's largest collection of vintage Hawaiian Clothing.
