The Hawaiian tartan is renowned for its beautiful colors representative of the flora and fauna of this tropical paradise. All sizes in stock!
The Hawaiian Tartan story:
In the beginning, there was the sea and the sky, and they were blue. From the depths of the ocean came lava, and it was a firey red and yellow. As the lava hardened, it formed the islands, and over time turned into the ‘aina, the rich brown life-giving earth. Soon the islands were covered in lush green vegetation, making them emerald jewels set in a cerulean blanket. Where the green of the islands and the blue of the ocean met formed the blue-green near shore waters, which flourished with abundant sea life. The Flora and fauna provided nourishment to the people who settled these islands, eventually adopting the red and yellow as royal colors.
In the tartan, the Blue is for the Pacific Ocean, The Green is for the vegetation, the Brown is for the land and the Red and Yellow have a dual purpose as the represent both the fire and lava that formed the Hawaiian Islands, and also honor the Hawaiian Monarchy.
Many thanks to Doug Herring of Oahu for designing this beautiful tartan!
This is the official registered tartan for the state of Hawaii.
Hem too wide
The vertical hem is about 4 inches on the front apron and about 6 inches on the back apron.
The hem is only sewn on the edge of the apron (of course) and alongside the horizontal top an bottom edge.
As a result the hem ‘buckles’ when, for example, sitting down or when it’s moving in a breeze, and doesn’t return to it’s position
This makes for awkward feeling and you have to straighten it out.
Still 4 stars though because I like the fabric, except for above problem it is well made and (again except for above problem) feel nice and cool to the skin.
Great product and amazing customer service! Thank you agin!
This is my second Sport Kilt and it’s also a winner. The quality continues. The support system here is also immediate and responsive: a good combo.

This is the second Original Sport kilt I’ve gotten. Same great fit and workmanship as the first. For the buck, these are a great buy.
