Hawaii Red Dirt Shirts
Not everyone gardens with soil or the bad word "dirt". A business was born from soiled shirts from Hurricane Iniki that hit kauai harsh in 1992. A mom and pop had a screen print business whose white shirts were stained red from all the rain and mud. They could not get the red out no matter how hard they tried. A friend suggested they finish them by adding more red mud so they would be evenly colored. The idea was a business success that all started on the beautiful island of Kauai!
There are stores in Arizona and on the islands of Hawaii. We visited their shop in Waikiki on Oahu. If you would like to order a shirt or cap of your own visit their website.
